Ive been toying with the idea of surgery for about 6 months now. My prolapse began to get pretty uncomfortable even though I was excercising. But to be honest I was not being very consistent. Life kept getting in the way. I visited a NEW Gyno in Jan. and he felt I should give Physical Rehab a good try. He also mentioned that if it goes well & stay on course througout my life I may never need surgery! I was skeptical but he set me up with a Rehab Clinician who specialized in Prolapse therapy.
First visit was today. She performed base line tests and it was great to see where I was faltering in my excercises on the electronic graph. Her machine could see how effective my kegal squeezes were and in relation to my different core muscles. My prolapse is around a stage 3 but it feels sometimes like a 4 1/2 when Im standing too long or sitting in the office chair too long. Ugh.
I learned there are a lot more muscles in there than I thought! No wonder Im not working them right. I do like to excercise, just can't seem to make the time. Im going to make the time so Im crossing my fingers that I can make this work.
The visits do cost but a fraction of the cost of a operation. I was told I should give it at least 6 weeks before I feel a huge difference. Thats really only a few months & am willing to work hard towards a better lifestyle. Worth a good go.
Love all the ladies that post who have had surgery. God Bless You! The body is a miraculous thing & Im sure with time you will heal. I may still be in your shoes some day as time will tell. For now, Im giving it my best shot.
I will keep those on the fence posted.
