    loislane2010 - How did your surgery go? I'm sorry to hear you had to be some uncomfortable for a couple of years! Could you have had the surgery done earlier, or did they make you wait to see if it would improve on its own?

    lilypily - It kind of feels like you have "something" down there all the time. When you are sitting, its a little like you have a small ball in there I guess.

    mushie daina - Does it bother you more during or after sex? I'm a little embarrassed about mine, so we're not doing it very often. But when we do, my prolapse feels kind of "irritated" for a while afterwards..

    I guess it is a lil more irritated after sex - if anything I may be a bit tighter, plus I'm still a bit 'dry' thanks to bf'ing - which makes me more self-conscious of it as well!!! Like I said, hubby assures me that all looks and feels the same to him, but I just feel ... Urrrrgh. I really can't explain how I feel - gross kind of comes close, even tho I know I am at the lower end of the scale of severity. Concern that alls not norma, I guess and what that'll mean with next bub.

    I've almost had my kegel8 for a week now and I love that it does the work for me. I was a little nervous putting an electrical stimulating probe in my vjj lol however it felt fine and did a way better job at targeting my kegels than I could do on my own. It's got a few different programs and even one to improve the big O as they say it's the key to having strong pelvic floors
    Definitely money well spent and can't wait to see the results after the 12 weeks.

    My kids are 4.5yrs and 2.5yrs so no amount of pelvic floor exercises is going to help.
    My advice to you would be to keep an eye on it. Do your exercises and if things dont get better talk to a specialist about surgery options. It can get worse quickly.

    Was this through the public system? If so did you have to wait long?

    I've got a bladder prolapse/cystocele and I feel like I also have a rectal cystocele. I'd love to get them fixed.

    I ordered mine from kegel8.co.uk. There are a few ones to choose from so I got the one to suit me the best. It cost about $260 AUD incl shipping. If you have a look at their website there is heaps of reviews and that's what influenced my decision to buy one.

    My first surgery (posterior repair) was through the public system, i waited about a month. This surgery was through private and i only waited about a week. Im not sure if i could have gotten it done sooner, i never really mentioned it before.

    For those who are interested, i have my surgery (posterior/anterior repair and transvaginal tape...bladder sling) last wed. It all went according to plan, and i spent 2 nights in hospital... have to empty your bladder twice in order to be released. First time i got up i was very shaky, i needed the nurses to help me. I didnt actually feel the need to go wees but i tried and it didnt happen. On the third try i went but didnt empty enough. It was a working progress .

    The worst thing was the pain in my legs. I was worried about it to begin with cos it felt like i had done about a million squats...i couldnt think of a reason why i hurt so much. Turns out its cos of the position your in during the surgery (for an hour thank you very much...so glad i was knocked out for that) and the instruments go up near your legs.
    The first BM was ok as i was advised to take a couple of laxatives when i got home...that did the trick. STAY AWAY from codeine, it can make you constipated (not something you want when your so fragile down there!!!)
    So a week later im only take one pain killer a day (down from 2 anti-inflamatories and 8 paracetamol). I still have to take it easy, no lifting heavy washing baskets or children but apart from that its all good.
    I havent peed myself yet so heres hoping its all done and dusted!!!

    Thanks for sharing that

    Have to ask though, is the above a typo? You say you HAVE peed yourself...do you mean you haven't?

    Oh good, thanks. Given the nature of the thread I had to be sure of what you meant! Lol.

    I'm going to book in to see my GP soon and get the ball rolling with my issues.

    Did you see your GP to get a referral? Is that the way to go?
