I meant to say there was NO PAIN connected with the slight discharge I had after my vaginal hysterectomy. Sorry about that. I just re read my posting and saw that typo. No Edit function on this board, so could not correct that very bad mistake. 😥

Hi oslass and aja:
Glad you got a chuckle out of the alliterative description. Maybe one reason I can be a little light hearted about the protruding stuff is that as a widow of almost 2 years now, I don’t have anyone in any position to observe this abnormality! It is just kitty and I, and she said she doesn’t care. 😉

I sure didn’t have twins, but I did have what sounds like a difficult birth of my just one chick, a daughter. This was back in the days when they seemed to do routine episiotomies – and also, my daughter’s birth was assisted by forceps. I understand that these days not as many episiotomies are done. I mentioned both these procedures to my woman GYN and she seemed to think that the forceps caused more damage than the cut. (By the way, these cuts sure hurt when one urinates in the days after the birth.) My daughter is now 52 and she has one child, a daughter, who is 25.

Hiya shellyB from the Jezebel’s.
Glad we have a little club going as I too have a prolapse.
I had a TAH/BSO on July 7th 2008.
Noticed I had a lump “Down below” in October so went GP who said it was just a weakened area of Vagina due to childbirth years ago.Didn’t offer me any solution apart form to go back if it got worse.
I went back in December and GP said he would refer me to another Doctor and also for some Physiotherapy.
I waited until the 21st January as I hadn’t heard anything and finally spoke to my GP who referred my to the Gynae Consultant originally.She said “Let’s get you back to see him as soon as possible.
Prolapse is definately worse.This morning my appt came through to see Gynae Consultant next Thursday so I am really pleased it won’t take long and I can sort out where I go from here.
Although I wouldn’t wish it on any of us ladies it is good to know we can support each other through yet another traumatic event in our lives as women.x.x.x.January 27, 2009 at 5:25 pm #106729
I had TAH/BSO on July 4th 2008 and am now due for posterior repair on February 10th, I was originally scheduled for Dec 16th but this was cancelled. I am desperately staying away from anyone with coughs and colds (not easy as a teacher) so that I am not cancelled again !!! Last time was due to a large number of emergency cases before Xmas…. I am dreading another major surgery as I felt really awful after last op, but I am looking forward to getting the repairs done and moving on with life !!!! 🙄
February 10th is now starting to loom large 😕 and no doubt the nerves will start to kick in soon !!! I’m glad to have this site to keep up to date with what everyone is doing and for the support it offers !!
Take care all of you

hi everyone – hope you are all feeling good today, despite the rain (again).
To give you all hope for the future – I am feeling SO much better after having my repairs done at end of November. No lumps down below and I have to say that the good old bm’s seem to be so much better now too. 😳 The lady McKeith would be proud of them! Whether this is due to having the rectocele mended or just that I am obsessive now with eating lots of veg, coleslaw, and drinking lots of water daily, I don’t know, but long may it last.
I have to use vagifem pessaries (well, tiny tablets inserted with a plastic rod) twice a week to help with the lining of the vagina, which seem to be ok now.
So take heart everyone – things will get better for you. 🙂
Have to add that I don’t intend to do any heavy lifting anymore, as I do think I still have weaknesses in that area, and dont want to develop any more prolapses if I can help it.
Just remember, after your ops, do be really good and spoil yourselves. Rest up, dont do any housework etc etc. and make sure you are really healed up before you get back to your old routines. I read sometimes that people start doing things at 3-4 weeks, and I wonder what goes on inside them – they may feel fine, but who knows what stretching to the stitched area is happening? Sorry, but that’s the way I feel – do the best you can to let your body heal and don’t rush things.
take care and good luck with your ops and recovery. Look forward to seeing how you all do and hearing about the new women of 2009!

Thanks for your post Charmian. Its really great to hear that you are finally feeling back to normal. You have rreally been an inspiration and confirms that we are all going the right thing by sorting these problems out.
Love Jay xxJanuary 28, 2009 at 7:51 pm #106732
Hello. Saw gynae today and she confirmed that I have a severe posterior prolapse and a minor anterior one. She is going to operate on the posterior but leave the anterior one. She said that if she does both I will end up with no vagina!
She is going to do it as soon as possible but definitely in the net 2 months.
Feel very relieved now but soooo tired. Its like a massive anti-climax.
Take care, ladies. xxxJanuary 28, 2009 at 11:53 pm #106733
Had my urodynamics test today and have some moderte bladder damage on top of a vault prolapse and some further prolapseing of the already repaired anterior wall, really fed up and down. 😥
Saw consultant after test and he says best to address the vault and bladder together which can be done combined abdominally, leave six months and then have other repair done vaginally if needed 😥
so am on the waiting list for a Sacrocolpopexy with Colposuspension (sounds like torture to me 😳 )
Anyway off to bed now been a long day, was hoping for better news but heh ho, hope a good nights sleep will sort me out and if not tomorrow going to buy me some of those choccy bikkies Alice likes lol! 😆 Speak soon.
Kim xJanuary 29, 2009 at 2:11 am #106734
I know I’ve already said this, but am so sorry about the outcome of your appt and that you rae needing to have more surgery. Hopefully will resolve the prolapse and give you some relief.
So sorry the news wasn’t as good as you were expecting, am so sorry that you are having to have so much surgery done.
Thinking of you both

Can i join, feel like crying, Had a cystocle prolapse and repair job done September 2007 then in June 2008 had to have vaginal hysterectomy as uterine prolapse was so bad. Both Gyne and myself were reluctant to do Hysterectomy during first op as was only 35 and had no other medical problems so wanted to see if it would be fixed with repair. Sadly not to be but hey have two gorgeous boys (more than a lot of people and glad that i had that time to get my head around it). Anyway have had backache this week and pulling from the front, finally got the courage to check myself today and felt like crying? Think i know have a vaginal vault prolapse but no idea?
I know i need to go to Dr’s but the thought of it makes me want to cry had sex about twice in two years ( i think my husbands a saint or having an affair).
Has anyone had vaginal vault repair and if so how is it now.
Cannot really understand why this has happened had 2 biggish babies both over 9lb and both complicated,have always been healthy and the v weird thing is i have NO STRESS INCONTINENCE AT ALL. Have the bladder of a camel. And although could do with losing a stone or two am no way massively overweight. N
On the up side for anyone having a vaginal hysterectomy it was a snap! well for me anyway! Prolapse repair not that bad either.
Sorry to whinge
KAZFebruary 1, 2009 at 10:49 am #106740
Kaz it’s ok to feel down I think we a re all in the same boat.I too go back and see my Gynae Consultant on Thursday 5th February to find out what is going to happen next regarding this Prolapse.
Have had a few problems with Marriage i.e Hubby not supporting me through the Hysterectomy but now he sees that I am not out of the woods he has finally come to his senses.
We have started to get close again and even though the Prolaspe is in the way,resumed intercourse.
But this is also without it problems as I have started to bleed 🙁 something else to chat to Consultant about now.It never ends 🙁 just hope all this will be sorted and I can forget it.February 1, 2009 at 11:12 am #106741
Sorry you going through the mill Kaz,its seems you get one thing fixed and heigh ho another takes its place.
I think that i to have a vaginal vault prolapse have app 11th feb,had TAH/BSO in dec 2006.
I to have no bladder problems (touch wood) but feel like a cows udder is hanging out down below,is that what its like for you? 😕
I do getting a dragging feeling,and feel my bum is heavy,i to had 3 big babies,like oven ready turkeys,.
I to would love to hear from anyone who has had this repaired,keep your chin up.
You can always come on here we are good listeners 🙂
Hope everyone else ok.
Love Alicexx 😉
