I had an operation for a prolapse 9 years ago and now I think I may have another one. I spoke to my practice nurse today - I see the doctor next week - and she mentioned that some women prefer being fitted with a pessary rather than having surgery.
The gynaecologist I saw 9 years ago felt it was better just to go for the operation and, at the time, I was happy to do this. I'm now 70 and, particularly as I've just had an operation for my arthritis, I'm not very keen on more surgery.
Have others been prescribed a pessary? How comfortable are they? Any problems? How often do they have to be changed?
I'd be really pleased to hear of other people's experiences.
