I’m 49 years old and have lost 8st over the past 14 months. As a result of this I have a anterior, posterior prolapse and my uterus is dipping. They aren’t massive but they are effecting my quality of life. Having a poo is awkward, i don’t always empty my bladder well. I have a consistent bulky feeling all day. Sex is effected and I feel less of a woman.
I’ve been having Physio for 3 months and have built the strength up in my pelvic floor. This has helped slightly. My gynaecologist has now offered me a surgical repair and maybe a hysterectomy if my uterus drops down whilst I’m under anaesthetic.
Is surgery the right option for me? I’m I too young for this surgery? Should I wait until I’m older, the prolapse is bigger? If I have the operation now how long will it last and will it be successful if it needs repeating when I’m older?
Id really appreciate people’s opinions and experiences please.
