Fri, Oct 11 2:16pm · Want to discuss prolapse bladder or any kind of prolapse in Women's Health

I like this. I was thinking very similar. Start doing yoga and Pilates again and enjoying my life and if anything happens at least I have a good doctor to go and fix the problem in the future.

Dear Gail,
The reason the doctors didn’t want to operate on my prolapsed bladder is because they think the POP it’s too early stage and perhaps Kegle exercises will do a better job at this point. Both doctors pointed that the surgery is too risky. Perhaps, me not wanting to put mesh, I told this from the beginning of the appointment, make them hesitate.
The doctor from Mayo Clinic said that I must go and do my exercises and yoga just as I did before the hysterectomy/ prolapse. But to be honest I am little worry to be as active as before because I don’t feel strong enough. And I get tired very quick. It’s been six months from my hysterectomy, my recovery is been hell. Only the last two months I start feeling little bit better. Regards

Hi girls, I am now pleased to tell you that after seeing 2 top Urogynecology specialist one in Houston and the other one in Mayo clinic Rochester, I have been advised not to do any surgery for my bladder prolapse at this stage. To be honest I was a little bit disappointed because I was expecting to do surgery for my condition and I traveled from very far – Europe. I guess, I have to consider the advice. Nevertheless I don’t know how I’m gonna do my previous activity before the hysterectomy I had six months ago. I used to do yoga and Pilates, Now I am scared to push my body not to damage even more my pelvic floor prolapse. Please let me know what you think, should I pursue meeting with other doctors so I can do the surgery. Or take the advice of this 2 Doctors I met and not do nothing at the moment. I am really confused. Will appreciate any advice. Thank you

Thank you for replying. Did the doctor do your bladder repair vaginally or laparoscopic?

Thanks for the information. I will call his office.
I am not from US, so for me the location of the doctor it’s not that important.
I just need him to be very skilled.
Me too I had hysterectomy done and I experience prolapsed bladder.
I did a lots of Kegel exercises which helped alot. But I still feel that I need surgery because when I’m tired I also feel heaviness in the pelvic floor. I can’t exercise like before and do yoga. I only do stretching and some easy positions in yoga.
I want to ask you if you are not afraid of the mesh since it’s been proven that it gives a lot of complications.
I have found a few good doctors in US that can do the surgery for prolapse bladder without the use of mesh. The doctor that I like the most is in Mayo clinic in Rochester but since I am self paid it is very expensive for the surgery, close to $40,000.
Therefore I am trying to find international insurance that can cover this expense. If anyone on this platform knows about international insurance please contact me.
Than you

Dear Gardeningjunkie,
Thanks for sharing your story. It’s very similar to mine. The only thing that is different is I am still looking for a top urogynecologiest in US to do my surgery.
Please tell me is your doctor full name Christian L Quintero Arias? And he works in Florida? I will very much appreciated if you answer. I am intrigued buy the success of your surgery, perhaps I can use the same doctor as you.
When I google the name that you pointed only this doctor comes out – Christian L Quintero Arias/ Florida.

Thank you.

Dear Shirls 1948,
Thank you for shearing your story. Can you tell us if you still have vaginal prolapse? And if it’s not a secret who was the doctor who did the successful surgery? Will be much appreciated.
Kind regards

Hi, is anyone knows a good physiotherapist in Houston who works with women who have Pelvic Prolapse after Hysterectomy? Someone who teaches how to do Kegel exercise maybe?

Kind regards,
