    Hi Lucy I understand your frustration I had the same gyni sent me to colorectal, colorectal back to gyni then to physio they wouldn’t feel what I felt when standing or sitting I finally researched and found a great gyni who sent me for a standing mri that did show exactly what I was experiencing my uterus pushing down on cervix pressing itinto rectum and back wall of vagina

      Goodness that’s sounds similar to what’s happening with me except I don’t have a uterus.  I have grade 2 cystecele and rectocele and the pressure on my rectum has been dreadful for six months. Having a pessary hasn’t helped at all so just had it taken out.

      Do you hurt when sitting?

      Was the sitting discomfort before you had any treatment or afterwards as I haven’t had anything done as yet.

      I had a full hysterectomy 10 days ago so early days also has cyst removed from bartholins gland dr also put a couple of stitches to add extra support to my bladder...I struggled to sit and empty bowels before op so I’m hoping once healed all will improve.my dr sent me for a standing mri scan that shown the position of everything my uterus was pushing cervix into rectum. I did have other options besides hysterectomy but chose this as I had a lot of pain from ovaries

    I second what Steph has put. Gynae's alone haven't don't the extra 3yrs required to qualify as a  Urogynaecologist. Demand to see one and don't get fobbed off. What is wrong with the medical profession and them understanding AND listening to woman experiencing pelvic floor issues. A standing MRI sounds justified as when you are lying down on back of course everything is nestled back up where it should be. Same applies to diagnosing levels of prolapses. Amuses me that most are graded while woman lying flat on back!! Grrrrrr

      I know Robyn it is soul destroying when you are being passed around urogynecologists and they all examine you lay flat even when I got my women’s physio to examine me standing and she agreed with me and referred me back to consultant they still wouldn’t examine me standing in the end I paid private to see yet another I was brutally honest on first consultation and said I was sick of being fobbed off he said right the best way to see what’s going on higher up was a standing mri...I am 9 days post op and fingers crossed all will be good

      Wow brilliant. Wonderful to read this. Rest lots, and NO lifting more than a kettle with enough water to make a cuppa. Also don't bend to pick things up off floor. Have you read the South Tees post-op advice on here?

      Yes I’m being oh so careful this time as this is second op first one 2 years ago repaired bladder and rectocele but it turned out it was uterus and cervix causing problems hence standing scan. I will be doing everything in my power to take care
