      How awful for you Marian, that must be so painful, don't know how you can stand that?

      I hope pessary works for you!

      There is one they can fit that given the right size and fitted correctly should stay in for 6 months before needing changed.

      Good luck and hope that's one less think to cope with.

    Go see a different doctor. I'm

    Seeing a doctor tomorrow to get second opinion after the last one said that the op I need might mess up my Tvt bladder op which was the worse news I could have heard. So I searched on google and did my own research. I'm a lot happier now and have hope. I know how awful this is, it's ruined my life. I'm very limited with activity. I've at home with a bug so that suits me sitting down but it's no way to live is it. No one seems to care. I'm waiting for physio 6 weeks on.. How long does it take ! Decided to learn my own pelvic floor exercise with Michelle Kenway - YouTube. I have 70 % improvement!! As the day goes on I'm more crippled with this prolapse. My plans have been compromised so totally know how you feel Marian sad xxx

    I have the same problem with my prolapse, and haven't got surgery yet because my hubby is disabled   and the lifting restrictions would be too difficult to obey. So I wear a V-belt. You can get them on-line. They support the vaginal area so nothing falls too far down. They are adjustable. Sometimes pregnant ladies wear them to support vuvar varicosities. They aren't cheap but one can get by with one orif you like them 2. Hope this helps. I used to wear a pessary but now one won't stay in and also hurts because my tissue is thin. 66

      Hi Janet,

      Never heard of v belt, wonder if that would help me when I return to work as my job involves heavy weight bearing to some extend and don't want to have to give it up. Sorry to hear you can't have surgery just yet.

      Thank you Janet will definitely look into that sounds like that could help me I work as a checkout operator and sometimes help to pack . Can avoid lifting most of time really just pushing things through but every now and then get really heavy things and can't always avoid lifting things. This might even help when on my feet for long hours!

    Sorry to hear abut your situation marian, there are lots of women not suitable to go through this operation, Matron is right, do see if you are suitable for a pessary. They are really growing in popularity and allow the wearer to either replace daily, or have one fitted and changed at intervals. The trick is to get the fitting right, and if at first you don't succeed then try again - when I say that some women will say 'It didn't work' or 'It fell out' - if a pessary falls out it means you need a larger size. The pessary works to support the pelvic organs that have prolpased (droped down) and acts as a brace or support, this takes the pressure off your already weak pelvic floor muscles and stops the 'dragging' feeling. A pessary can also used for women who want more family but have prolpased, so please explore this option with your GP. Good luck.
