Hello everyone, I am new to this group. I have had a vaginal and uterine prolapse since my third child 14 years ago. I have had a ring pessary in place for the last 6 mths which has relieved the symptoms considerably. I'm due to have anterior/posterior repairs and vaginal hysterectomy in a month and I'm so scared about having it done.
I get back ache from the ring pessary and I can't do exercise like I used to so on one hand I would like to get the op done so I can do without it. However on the other hand I've been warned that urinary incontinence could get worse after this surgery. It's not too bad at the moment - certainly doesn't stop me doing anything
Has anyone been in a similar situation and moved from a ring pessary to surgery? How has it turned out for you?
