Thu, Oct 10 2:31pm · Want to discuss prolapse bladder or any kind of prolapse in Women's Health

The bladder has fallen, but the bulge is in the front of the vagina, so if she tacks my bladder again it will definitely need to be put it in a sling and there won’t be much room for bladder to expand. She says not to have it done unless I absolutely have to. I did go to bladder physical therapy which was well worth the time, travel and money! It is usually only available at larger teaching hospitals.

In NC we can call the local county hospital or senior center and a representative sets up a free appt. and uses SHIP – a computer program which helps you make the decision of which Medicare supplement plan is best for you. Most decisions are based on which prescription medicines you use.

I agree! You are having an allergic reaction that is very serious. If the swelling goes from the tongue to the throat you won’t be able to breathe! Call 911!

I had similar symptoms and it was a back problem!. One of my discs in my lower back was messed up and laying on some major nerves going down my leg. I have had surgery – fusion of discs 4 and 5 – and no more pain in my leg and buttocks! Get your back checked! An MRI and xrays showed the problem. Hope this helps!

I believe you need to go to an internist who is “trained to treat simple and complex problems…coordinating patient care with other specialists as difficult medical problems arise. I got this definition from PIEDMONTHEALTHCARE.COM. Hopefully there should be a choice of several internists close by. They are pretty common. My internist was awesome and solved a lot of complex issues for me. Also I have put you on my prayer lis.t! Hope this helps.

Dear ggm43, I feel for you! I had prolapse surgery (Birch procedure), pelvic floor redone, and a full hysterectomy and did fine! The pain was not bad, and the hardest part of recovery was being bored while waiting to heal! 25 years later my bladder has fallen again, but only because I lifted things way to heavy for years! The limit for lifting was supposed to be 20 pounds. I also would suggest learning some relaxing techniques to help you deal with the anxiety and you will feel so much better! I’ll be praying for you as you go through this! Hope this helps!

The best investments I’ve made with my prolapse, was to go to a teaching hospital meaning a hospital connected to a university where where they have programs for medical doctor degrees and go to the urology department for help. My doctor Dr. Matthews is the head of the Urology department of Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem, NC connected to Wake Forest University. She actually did not recommend surgery at this time, but did recommend bladder physical therapy. I went from getting up multiple times a night (and day) to getting up once a night and much less during the day. My therapist taught me exercises to strengthen the muscles that hold the bladder. I have a friend who also went and she went from going ten times a night to once a night! Dr. Matthews also helps with bowel prolapse too. Hope this helps!
