Hi I am due to have a hysterectomy on 23 April for a prolapsed womb and will have a bowel and slight bladder repair at the same time as they are both prolapsed. Feel daunted as apart from the very uncomfortable bulge I am very fit and have no pain. I am 62 and did not expect this as I haven’t even been to the doctor for anything other than an injection for overseas travel in well over 10 years. Still not sure if this is right for me but I don’t want to feel this uncomfortable for the rest of my life. I am also worried about further prolapses after the surgery. I am not overweight nor do I smoke so maybe things will be OK. I know I will have to really rest after surgery and will not be looking after the grandchildren for months.
Anyone else feeling the same? xx
