COLLEEN, I HAVE NOT EVER HAD SURGERY FOR MY PROLAPSED BLADDER SO I CAN'T CONTRIBUTE TO THAT DISCUSSION. BUT FOR SEVERAL YEARS I'VE USED A PESSARY WHICH I , MYSELF, MANAGE MANUALLY, TO HAVE CONTROL OVER THE PROLAPSE. MY LAST POST ON THIS SITE WAS TO REPORT HUGE HUGE HUGE IMPROVEMENT WITH THE PROLAPSE AFTER HAVING LOST WEIGHT. FROM ABOUT 215 AT FIVE FEET 6 INCHES TALL TO ABOUT 175 LBS NOW AT 77 YEARS OLD. . I WAS NEVER TOLD LOSING WEIGHT WOULD IMPROVE IT. BUT I CERTAINLY HAVE BEEN GLAD TO FIND IT OUT.

75 yr old female. Used a pessary, manually, several years. Height 5' 6" . Weighed 210. lost 30 lbs. Now at 180 lbs my bladder has "recovered" and is no longer a problem. No one ever told me losing weight would bring such success with my bladder ! YAY YAY YAY

Colleen, I've dealt with being overweight off and on all my life ! 216 my top weight at 5 ft 6 ". But at age 78 now knowing I need to do everything possible to maintain some semblance of good health I just started eating less and small amounts more often, though I've known and probably been on every diet known to man kind in my life ! I am not very physically active and need to do better, try to walk more often. Plus I've not changed anything else in my life . Wish I could be telling you I followed some fabulous diet that was easy as pie to explain my weight loss. But that's unfortunately not the case. I am just stunned my prolapsed bladder has improved so greatly with the weight loss ! It certainly was never thought about nor had any doctor or friend ever suggested it might occur ! Thanks for your interest. Sally

I want to share my prolapsed bladder–which I'd never had surgery for —- that I'd been using a pessary to let me be comfortable now is at least 85 % -90% better thanks unbelievably and evidently because I have lot 35 pounds. At 5" 6" and 77 years old, I had weighed between 200 and 217 for the last 15 or so years ! But this 35 pound loss has made all the difference in the world ! I currently only use the pessary—which is a manual one I control the usage of—when I am going to be on my feet or more physically active than usual that day ! I probably wouldn't have believed a weight loss would improve my "fallen" bladder so much if anyone had told me such ! But it's true and I am grateful for it ! Hopefully I will be losing another 20 pounds or so soon ! Will be interesting to see if the bladder situation improves then too ! Best wishes !

Actually no one advised the sitz bath. I happened to have one of the plastic tubs on hand from a long ago hemorrhoid problem and thought the warm water would be soothing. Which it was ! But like previously mentioned I stopped using it, fearful it might be a germ carrier of some sort ! I'll never know if that had anything to do with my (hopeful ) recovery ! But it's my story! So far, so good still to this day ! And I wish everyone reading this would have the same sort of luck ! Best wishes !
