Partial womb/uterus prolapse

Hey ladies

So ive been in pain for 7 months after feeling something rip in my pelvis...

I ended up in hosp where they tested me for every illness but i said im not ill i am in pain.

I had colonoscopy for diverticulitus and lap for endo but i kept saying it feels like a injury !!

So 7 months down line i actually seem a pelvic floor specialist and she did a internal and what do u know she felt a lump in vagina... so saw dr on Tuesday and Aparently i have a partial prolapse! Not sure what bit she think womb/ uterus???

No other advice just being sent to gynae can anyone tell me more? What it entails. What helps it? If il need surgery blah blah coz i know nothing

Sorry to hear this; I'm new to this prolapse stuff too as I'd never heard of it till I found my womb sticking out into the open air by nearly an inch and wondered what it was. If yours is still inside, it might not need any immediate treatment, I think, but it won't get any better, I'm afraid. You could try kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor, or you might be advised to wear a pessary -something I'm still dreading but some people seem to get on all right with them. It's good you've got an appointment with a gynae who will go through the options with you. My appointment is in a few days, too, so let's wish each other all the best! I found loads of info on NHS website, Hers Foundation and Whole Woman Forum, which may help you know what it entails. Hope this helps.

Yeh it all new to me,it scarey isnt it?

Mines a partial so i take it yours is a full?

Hows the pain for u?

Mine so painful, it just pulls all time , i cant have sex. I have trouble peeing and pooping( tmi sorry).

I have heard about a pessary but not sure i fancy that id rather just have surgery get it sorted ( ive had this for a year) how long and how did urs happen.

Yeh i have had so many wrong diagnoses that ive had a colonoscopy and laparoscopy for no reason whatsoever!!!

So my dear old

Mother has offered to pay for me to see dr rowan connell privately so that i get in soon but i wont b able to have any treatment privately but i just need to see someone quick
