Prolapse Surgery

What is prolapse surgery?

Posterior repair is used when the rectum drops and pushes into the back of the vagina. This procedure is also done through the vagina by using your own tissues or vaginal mesh to repair the prolapse. Sacrocolpopexy and sacrohysteropexy. These procedures use surgical mesh to fix and anchor organs that have dropped down.

How do I know if my prolapse is severe?

Moderate to severe prolapse may cause symptoms, such as:

  1. The feeling that you’re sitting on a ball.
  2. Vaginal bleeding.
  3. Increased discharge.
  4. Problems with sexual intercourse.
  5. The uterus or cervix protruding out of the vagina.
  6. A pulling or heavy feeling in the pelvis.
  7. Constipation or difficulty passing stool.

What should you not do with a prolapse?

If you have pelvic organ prolapse, avoid things that could make it worse. That means don’t lift, strain, or pull. If possible, try not to be on your feet for long periods of time. Some women find that they feel more pressure when they stand a lot.
