Posted , 3 users are following.

hi my doc has just told me i have a prolapse and im terrified, i have endless history of lady problems and now this, She has its not enough to see a consultant about but what if it get worse? The waiting lists are dreadful and there is no way i can go private,, Who would i see? An urologist or a gynae? I can see the lump clearly and ive just started a new relationship as well which is going to be awkward. What if the prolapse comes right out? I can feel it all the time and its making me sore.

    Hello Cath

              First of all stop feeling it because you are aggrivating the prolapse. I have had a prolapse bladder for over ten years and mine stayed up until a year ago when it started to protrude out of the vagina area. It is not life threatening but it is scary when you first discover it. The lump is actually the bladder behind the vagina wall falling out of its normal position. Your pelvic floor holds up all those organs, bladder, uterus, rectal etc.

    You should start doing pelvic floor exercises for starters while you are waiting to see the doctor. Do you have any other symptoms like bowel problems or urinary problems?

    I will private email you with the web site for you to go to, to look at the pelvic floor exercises.

      Okay Cath

                Look after yourself and do what you can to improve that draggy feeling etc. The pelvic floor exercises is a good start. I am glad you are not trying to touch your prolapse as it will start to bleed a little if it gets too aggrivated. I open up two vitamin E capsuls every night, squeeze out the liquid and rub it all over gently inside the vagina around and on the prolapse. It soothes and keep the prolapse from bleeding or getting irritated. Talk to you again.

                                      Blessings to you

    Firstly, this is an annoying condition but it's not life threatening! I had a rectocele and a vaginal vault prolapse for a number of years before having them operated on 9 weeks ago. The lump can be frightening to view but it  usually looks far worse to us than it is. As Lyn said, leave it alone, do pelvic floor exercises and ask to be put on waiting list to see a gynaecologist at your local hospital. Start the ball rolling now and you will at least be taking control. Good luck.
