Question for ladies who only had a Cystocele repair.

Posted , 5 users are following.

Sorry if this is a bit graphic but I'd like to find out before surgery.

I am worried that after my repair I will be left with a bigger vagina. When I push my front wall to where it should be I have a gap below my fingers. This really concerns me as I don't want to be bigger than I am now! I know Rectocele repairs can make the vagina narrower but the front wall of the vagina is attached to the pubic bone so is very different. Can anyone tell me how it was after your Cystocele repair?

    No, no, no - the surgeon is tightening it all up when doing anterior repair!! I had anterior repair & TOT sling & I sure as hell ain't looser. Tightening it up is the whole point of the surgery. You have a prolapse because things have over stretched & sagged. Surgeons have to be careful if doing A&P repair to NOT let you end up too tight. What on earth makes you think vag will be bigger? I don't think you understand the whole repair very well at all.

    3 year ago I only had a repair at the front , it was all very tight at the start, was worried that it was too tight and would be unable to have penetrative sex but over the months it did slacken off and it was as fairly normal as before!

      I'm hoping I won't go back to the size I am now tbh, it would be nice to be smaller. I did email my surgeon about wether I'd need a posterior repair and he said he tries to avoid 3 surgeries to different compartments so things are not too tight, hoping this means the anterior repair will make a difference! My surgery is on Thursday, I really can't wait to get it over with, I just hope everything will be ok. X

      Usually a repair does tighten thinks up! I'm sure everything will be fine these surgeons are highly skilled and are doing these ops all the time. Let us all know how you get on!
