Hi I've been told my GP that I have a grade 1 or 2 prolapse and I'm going to ask to see a urogynaecologist. I had a hysterectomy in 2005 - no one mentioned anything about a prolapse in the future to me at that time I remember asking what about the cavity left and being told nothing would happen to it! Anyway water under the bridge now I guess I'm 57 and my main symptoms are a heavy bulgy feeling inside. I don't have bladder/bowel problems that I've read others have (yet) but I have had a uti over the weekend and am on trimethoprim. Since this uti the bulge/discomfort feels worse. I'm going back to the GP later today.
I feel devastated to have this condition (and it's fairly mild at the moment!!) I've had a lot to cope with recently. I had a hip replacement in 2015 and I found my mother dead on Easter Monday this year. Can anyone give me any practical tips on how to manage this thing? I do my pelvic floor exercises religiously. Any words of encouragement will help. It's been a bad day so far. Sorry to moan.
