Hi, I'm 28 years old, 1 little girl, almost 4. Posted here a while back. After extreme exercising (bouncing exercise) 3 X a wk for months and running then getting an awful cough I noticed I could feel pressure down below. I went to the GP, waiting months and thought I was getting refferred to find out I was seeing a nurse, not a consultant! She couldn't examine me due to time of the month so we just spoke and discussed basically everything I already knew! Lovely lady but a totally useless appointment and I was literally told ' keep doing your pelvic floor exercises and get on with life'.
I just feel so fobbed off! I know this is clearly a common problem in a lot of women but I feel like no one cares, no one wants to help me. I'm 99% sure it's a bladder prolapse and have good and bad days. I had a good like 2/3 wks and felt nothing! But last few days it's awful, feel loads of pressure and bulging feeling, and today for the first time i actually felt pain! I'm doing my pelvic floors and have the 'Hab-it' dvd but not feeling an improvement. I've stopped all exercise and try and sit down as much as I can but its so hard. I work in a pre-school in the morning, spend time with my daughter in afternoon then nanny 2 hours late afternoon so I feel like I'm on my feet so much! I don't know what stage I am at, if I should just carry on as the nurse advised or if I should persist with my GP to be referred so I can be properly diagnosed! I feel so alone. After 4 years of feeling like a frump, I've finally shifted my 'baby weight' and looking and feeling really good on the outside but now I'm battling this and I'm so scared. Recently single after coming out of a horrible relationship and the thought of meeting someone knew and having this problem is worrying me. Has anyone got any advice for me? What step to take next? Thanks :-(
