I feel everything is coming out.  Awful dragging feeling and all sorts of "nobbly" bits can be felt when I try and push it back.  Feeling very nervous.  Does this sound normal for a prolapse?

      I have an hospital appointment this Friday.  I waited about 3 weeks for this .  It is really getting me down.

      If you're in the UK 3 weeks isn't too long to wait but I can imagine because you're having so much pain and discomfort they would see you very quickly. So hopefully on Friday you'll know exactly what is going to happen.

      Mosnippy did you have to wait a long time for surgery?  I can understand you being nervous I would be too but hopefully you should feel so much better to enjoy Christmas.  All the best,

      Hello everyone kind enough to get involved.  I went along to see consultant this morning.  They gave me the option of a ring or surgery if I want it.  Physio no longer feasable.  I opted for a ring and it was inserted there and then.  A bit uncomfortable but worth it if it works.  I feel a bit achey but that awful dragging feeling has gone.  Consultant says I can carry on with all normal activities includidng long country walks (6 to 7miles) It sounds too good to be true.  So fingers crossed.......

    Hi, Judith:  It sounds like what I have, for sure.  I feel like a baby's head is coming through the vaginal area, and very hard to urinate, even though I feel like I have to most of the time..I have a doctor appt. tomorrow to weigh my options.   Will let you know what I find out.  I hate the thoughts of surgery, but I can't stand this pressure feeling much longer.  It also puts pressure on my lower back, and I already have major back problems..Feel better soon....

      Thanks for getting back to me Carole.  Though I know its a common problem I feel as though I am the only one.  Thats why I got onto this forum.  Do let me know how you get on at Doctors.  I had to go twice before he referred me to hospital.  My appointment is for this Friday.  I am at the point that I'm not worried about surgery as long as they can fix things.  It would be good though if I could get away with a pessary.  My mum had the same problem and she had a ring.

      Take care

      i tried the rings and they kept falling outsad but dr said the rings are not a long term solution for sexually active people/younger generations, as it can sometimes be feltsad

      my consultant gave me a prescription for bladder pills which has helped loads! vesicare or something like that i dont have to pee every 2 seconds and feel like i empty better (most of the time)

      good luck with appointment hope you find what works for you x

      Your'e very welcome, Judith...Im in the USA, and if I have to have surgery there will probably be a 3 MONTH wait...I'm usually so nervous about going to my OBGYN, but today, my appt. is 1:15pm. my time, and I'm kind of excited about finding out what to do.  I hate surgery, but I'm like you, if I come through it feeling better it will all be worth it.  Will let you know, sweetie...HUGS.

      Thank you so much.  I just wonder what the consultant will suggest on Friday.  If surgery is an option I will have to wait up to 18 weeks I think

      Anyway hope your op is quick easy and comfortable
