I have grade 1 cystocele and grade 3 rectocele. I was put on waiting list for repair op last Aug, with possible hysterectomy. I was booked in hosp 4th Jan but op was cancelled due to winter pressures on NHS. I have suffered with prolapse for 3 years, since I started menopause. I am 54. To start with I was referred to physio for pfe, I did these 3 times a day for 18 months, but the prolapse got worse.They then tried 4 different types of pessary but each one either fell out or slipped down to an uncomfortable position.The consultant then said surgery was the only option. The prolapse is uncomfortable but not painful, I have no trouble with bladder or bowels. Sometimes I have to rearrange myself lol. Since my op was cancelled I have found this website. What an eye opener. I haven't been told anything about the recovery. Only that it will take about 6 weeks!! reading the posts I am not so sure. I am quite active, walking, badminton, gardening, yoga and a fairly physical job which gets really busy March to Sept. I'm also self employed. I am beginning to think about putting op off. But I go back to square 1 on waiting list. After reading some of the posts I think I may well just put up with the discomfort. No word from hosp yet when my op will now happen. Any words of advice please. Sorry to go on and on and on!
