Can anyone help me?
I would like to know about pelvic organ prolapse, I have some really scary experiences and so far no answers that comfort me.
I had phoned up the NHS help line in April very concerned. I had got out the shower and felt burning in side my vagina. When I sat on the toilet and felt in side, I was touching what felt like a penis coming towards my opening.
I spoke to the NHS direct, they told me to take a paracetamol and they would call me back. I phoned up again two hours later; I explained that I am already on tramadol. They assured me that someone would phone.
Monday morning I phoned my GP and asked to see the duty doctor. The doctor examined me and asked how many children I have given birth to naturally; I said one by C section. She said that he uterus was very low. She also said that there were very thin walls in places and other places had additional tissue. She said that if it popped out to lie on my back with my feet in the air and push it back, if I did not feel right about that, then I was to call the surgery and they would push it pack.
She also said that there is a test they can do to see how far my uterus comes out. I lies on my side they grab hold of my uterus and see how far out they can pull it.
I was horrified.
