I discovered my cystocele the other day and it was confirmed at a Dr. appt. on the 27th. I'm going to a specialist on the 3rd, so until then I'm not exactly sure of what level the prolapse is yet.
Sadly, I've never heard of this condition - ever! I'm still in shock that it is/was never discussed as a potential medical condition at any of my annual visits. (Short rant, sorry!)
I am 52 and have been full menopausal for many years. I don't even remember when my last period was! I had 2 vaginal births in my late 20's. I am also very physically active and run (or did run) 3 miles 4 times a week. Sounds like a perfect storm for a prolapsed bladder, right? Anyway, I had absolutely no symptoms whatsoever when I felt the infamous heavy feeling and then discovered the little bulge inside my vagina opening when I was showering after my run.
I've been reading everything I can find on the net to try and make the best treatment option for me. I was thrilled to run across this site during my frantic search for information. I've learned more hear in one hour than I have on any medical site, bar none. So, thanks to everyone for participating in these discussions!
I'm posting to see of anyone has tried to "reverse" (if that's even possible) using estrogen cream/hormone treatment along with exercises?
Has anyone tried to correct the problem with any other methods besides having a hysterectomy and/or using a pessary?
Thank you for taking the time to read my post!
Happy New Year and wishing everyone health and joy in 2018!
