    Tracey, do not restrict yourself from normal everyday things we have to do. It is better to move and keep things going then sit and do nothing. It is heavy lifting you have to be concerned about. Dusting and vacuuming and cleaning is healthy and so is walking. In fact walking uphill is very, very good on the pelvic floor and to help prolapse.

    Do a little test on yourself. Stand straight, without bending your knees, go down and try to touch your toes. You will feel your prolapse going back up further if you really tune into to it. I do that exercise a lot and it does feel better for the prolapse.

      Good for you Tracey. It is always best to keep things moving. You know that old saying if you don't use it expect to lose it. Mine started out as a milder prolapse over ten years ago and because of menopause it unfortuntely, came down more then I would like, but I am managing very well with my support garment as well as lots of walking, exercise etc. I have no pain, no bathroom problems, not urinary problems. All I needed was a good support and again exercises. I am 65 in January, so life is good even with prolapse as long as you learn to live with it and know how to support it , if you choose not to have surgery like me, because I don't need it. Some may need it or just choose it, that is there choice.

                                 Blessings to you

    You should probably ask your doctor.   I believe heavy lifting can cause the tear to get worse.

      Yes, you are correct Dorry. As I mentioned earlier anyone should be concerned about heavy lifting if you have a prolapse. It makes a prolapse much worse as well as heavy lifting will be the worse thing you can do after a repair or during a repair healing.

                                                Blessings to all
