    Default Prolapse questions - sorry if TMI

    I'm waiting on scan results and another appointment to confirm a vaginal prolapse. I think it's my bladder which would explain uti's and needing to pee all the time
    Has anyone had one? Did it require surgery to fix?
    I'm worried about exercising until I know what's going on but don't want to lose my gym mojo lol.

    I haven't but someone I know has. She wasn't finished having kids so her specialist suggested "packing" (that's the term she used) to hold everything in until after she had another baby. She has recently had surgery and says she feels like a new woman!
    Before that, she had to use incontinence pads as she was constantly leaking or didn't have control of her bladder.
    No idea about the exercise. She wasn't exercising so I don't think it was an issue.
    Good luck with the diagnosis and treatment. I hope you get a some answers soon

    Thanks for that the doctor said that a pessary is an option to hold it in place but depends on severity so have to wait and see I guess. No more kids here so that's not an issue lol.

    yes. I have had sling surgery on my bladder.
    After having two 9lb+ babies my bladder had moved down in my pelvic cavity and i was constantly leaking.
    Best thing i ever did was have the surgery. I couldnt even walk down the street without peeing myself a little...and if i sneezed or coughed or jumped, forget about it.
    Im happy to answer questions u have

    Can I ask how you discovered it? Was it just the loss of bladder control or could you see/feel it?

    I've also had two 9lb + babies (and one 5lber) but my youngest is 6 now. I have questioned a mild prolapse in the past but told there wasn't anything to worry about back then.

    Default Prolapse questions - sorry if TMI

    Hey hon, I have a pessary for my prolapse, I got it this year. I got it in lieu of surgery (for now anyway) and it's the best thing, has really helped me.

    It has made such a difference when I run or jump or lift things up.

    Eta: My issues aren't leakage or anything, mine is to lift things up and hold things in iykwim.

    Default Prolapse questions - sorry if TMI

    That's good to hear! I'm getting my gallbladder out in 2wks and the wedding is less than 3mnths away so hoping to avoid surgery for the time being!

    Leakage is only an occasional thing at this stage but things are bulging out where they shouldn't be

    Did the doc give you any advise regarding exercise?

    Gosh a lot of women I know have had their gall bladder out, very common after having a pregnancy! Hope it all goes smoothly for you and you can eat as before.

    The Doc advised me to try not to lift things that are too heavy (not always possible of course) and mainly to stick to non-impact exercise. The pessary has made exercise so much more bearable, even walking.

    Yeah gallbladder issues run in my family and I've dealt with it undiagnosed for about 7yrs. Doctor was shocked I haven't presented at hospital from the pain but once I pointed out I've been on so many pain meds for my back for 10yrs he kinda understood lol. Still bloody hurts though!

    Hmm might just stick to light weights and Aqua until I know what's going on.
