Hi I'm 71 years old and have always lived an active life and considered myself fit and healthy until about a year ago when, suddenly after having a difficult bowel movement I discovered a lump protruding from in front of my vagina. I went to my GP in total panic where I was told it wasn't uncommon for a woman of my age who had had two fairly difficult births and was given some pelvic floor exercises to do. Cutting a long story short, over the last twelve months I went to see a physiotherapist and also a pilates instructor on a regular basis. I also changed my lifestyle, eating habits, not lifting anything heavy etc. After not seeing any improvement I've purchased a Kegel8 toner. I've been using this for six weeks now and again I'm not seeing any improvement, although they have advised me that it can take several months due to the severity of my prolapse. I REALLY don't want to have surgery so I'm sticking with it for now. What I'd like to know is do any of you have any similar experiences? Have you used the Kegel8 toner? Is it possible to just learn to live with the prolapse? I'm fortunate that I don't have any pain and as I keep reminding myself, it's not life threatening.
I'd be grateful for any feedback, it's just good to communicate with some-one else in a similar situation isn't it?
