I’m new here but feel just the same emotions as many of those on the forum. It’s very reassuring to learn of others feeling the same sort of fears and worries.
Does anyone know whether sacrospinous fixation can be done for prolapse while leaving the uterus in place? Does it depend on the size of the uterus e.g. if enlarged with a fibroid can it not been done? Many thanks for any and all replies
Hi Jill – It’s good you’ve found this forum as you wont feel so alone now. It is possible, from what I’ve read, to carry out the sacrospinous fixation retaining the uterus but the success rate might not be as good. I wasn’t offered this – possibly due to my age (60 when I had it done) so I can give any experience. I did find this http://patient.info/doctor/genitourinary-prolapse-pro You need to scroll down to “surgery for uterine prolapse” I’m not sure about whether you can have it done with an enlarged uterus though. Hope it helps.
