Symptoms of prolapse

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi

I urinate about 15 times a day.

Every time I urinate it feels like the bladder drops more.

How did everyone handle this before the surgery ?

It is insane.

Thanks for any help .

    I know exactly what you're going through, I was the same before my operation. The important thing is not to restrict your fluids because it won't make any difference. My GP gave me some tablets to help reduce the frequency and they were really good. Obviously once I'd had my repair I didn't have any problems.

      Hi

      Thank you.

      Do you know the name of the pills?

      I think my bladder is not emptying that why I go to the bathroom so much.

      I see the specialist next week.

      Thanks for your help.

      I think it was Oxybutynin but if your bladder isn't emptying properly I'm not sure they will help but there must be something else that your doctor can prescribe. It's definitely worth asking. I wouldn't have taken anything because I don't like taking pills but I was working full time, in and out if meetings and doing ward work it was just so embarrassing having to nip off to the loo literally every 30 minutes plus I was exhausted from lack of sleep because the frequency was during the night as well although not as often.

      Thank you

      It seems to me that it is nit emptying.

      I dont know what they do about that .

      I do not want a vag on until the operation.

      3 times at night and 12 tines at least during the day.

      A test can be performed to check if your bladder is emptying or not but I'm not sure your GP could do it but it can easily be done at hospital. It's a case of scanning your bladder after you've passed urine and if you've more than 100mls left then it's not emptying completely.

      Hi

      Thank you for your help.

      Wednesday the doctor will do the urodymanic test in the office .

      What do do they if the bladder is not emptying ?

      I hope they won't put a catheter and bag on for 6 weeks.

      That would be horrible .

      Hoping for the best.

      How was your recovery after your surgery?

      I heard the first day and night is terrible.

      Thanks ago

      margie they won't leave a catheter in so don't worry about that. They'll do the test, discuss it with you and decide what they need to do. I had my surgery over 6 years ago having nursed ladies for years and yes the first few days aren't easy, I won't lie it's painful but you are given pain relief which helps but it takes roughly 6 weeks before you start to feel better and you must rest, that's important. But it's worth it. To get rid if the horrible symptoms is such a relief.
