Hi, I’ve just joined today. I’m 59 years old and I’ve had a prolapsed vagina for a few years, probably the result of giving birth naturally to 3 large baby boys.
I was told by my GP after she examined me that I needed an operation on my vagina as there was a lot of loose skin, it would be cut away and re aligned.
I was then seen by a consultant at my local hospital. She told me I would need a hysterectomy and have my bladder and bowel re aligned.
I was so shocked that I didn’t ask any questions. Now I would like to know if this major operation is really necessary.
I have to stand up to wee otherwise it won’t come out easily, and I drink senna tea every day which acts as a laxative.
My condition rules my life as I need to stay near toilets.
Does anyone else have any experience of this condition, or has any one had a successful vaginal hysterectomy?
I would love to chat to others with a similar condition.
