hello, I am new to this group, although active on the Lichen Sclerosus one. My gynaecologist last week suggested my slight prolapsed bladder should be dealt with by a plastic ring. I hate the idea of this but I guess at age 70 I am not going to get on any hospital list in the public sector.
I need to do something as my LS is enough to cope with without having urine leaking onto me which is beginning to happen. I wash every time I pee with soda bicarbonate rinses to prevent this burning. The prolapse is visible on standing but not on lying down.
So, the pessary ring? Any one had it and is it generally successful and would anyone recommend it? I have had anterior and posterior repairs in my 50s, I would prefer that again (obviously I would need to go private) but then my general health isn't all that amazing so it's maybe a risk.
thanks in advance ...
