Hi all,
I haven't been on here for ages either...a bit like other people, I like not to think about it all too much most of the time, although of course it's never too far from my mind, as I can usually feel my pessary pushing down onto my perineum as the day goes by....

congrats, meeskamouska, on your surgery! I hope it all keeps going well and you will feel like a new woman! A great thought. I completely understand your feelings about sex....I'm really struggling with it, as I feel completely unsexy - poor husband....

raven74 - wow - what did you do to make it so much better?? Just pelvic floor exercises and good luck, or something else??

threeplusone - sorry to hear you have joined our little club.....good to be among kindred spirits though...yes - you should go and see your GP, who will give you a referral to a gynaecologist or urogynaecologist. I got a referral to the public system, but was going to have to wait 3 months for an appointment, so I ended up going to see someone as a private patient so I could at least get a pessary, which improved things a lot for me.

moose2 - don't be embarrassed! Certainly not here....I have a mild rectocoele as well as a moderate cystocoele and mild cervical prolapse. It kind of just feels like it's all falling apart...not a pleasant thought. I'm amazed just how much something like this can affect your state of mind - not just in terms of intimacy, but also just your general day to day motivation and energy levels.....as for threeplusone - start with your GP and get a referral to a gyno or urogyno. I'm going through the public system now at the Royal Women's in Melbourne, and they have a Gyno Clinic that they send you to.

I've been reasonably good, but I think as bub is getting more heavy (she's 1 year and 9kg now) - I suspect carrying her around isn't doing much for my lower bits. I think perhaps my cervix, which always was just quite a mild Grade 1 if anything at all, is starting to hang a bit lower, and it's feeling more crowded again down there. In addition, I had a really bad cough a few weeks ago, resulting in my peeing my pants everytime I coughed (which was really nasty...) and destroying much of the good work I'd done on my pelvic floor. Will be interesting to see what my physio has to say when I see her in a week or so. Planning to have another bub, but I think surgery will definitely be on my list at some point after that!

Moose2 - your local Dr can give you a referral thru th public system. It takes a bit of time to get hru so if this is the avenue you r thinking you should get started.
Jazie - I remember all too well the toddler carrying thing. I think this did alot of further damage for me. There is alot of things I did that I regret. I moved god knows how many huge bolders in our garden. Strained against terrible constipated. In hindsight I wish I had my time over.
Your right, it does affect u mentally, not just with sex as u say but everyday stuff.  I used to ride horses alot but wouldn't dream of it anymore. Not sure how I'll go with that post surgery.

Post op - I'm 13days??? post op. Everything is healing up nicely. I get around alot better and don't really have any pain anymore but just taking it careful. Thinking about a drive this arv to see how I go.

Take care Ladies.

I was hoping to join in here but it doesn't look like anyone is still around????

I don't know all the fancy names of them but I've just found out I have a prolapse of the rear wall, front wall and uterus.  The gyno said he could stitch the bladder etc back in to place but I would still need a hysterectomy a few years down the track.  So I have to decide wether I would like to do that or not.  I don't see much point in having surgery now and then again later.  He did say I could get the pessary but then you have to get it changed every 4 months and he said it doesn't work for everyone.

Well I think that's all I'll say until I know if I'm just talking to myself   biggrin.gif

Joddic - Your not talking to yourself. We're around but its just not an overly active thread is all. People stop by every now & then. No good on your prolapse news. I've recently just had a hysto & repairs done. I'm feeling pretty darn good down there these days. So glad I made the leap for surgery.... as scary as it was.

SLinking in...

Self diagnosis and gut ( or fanny) instinct, tells me I have what I think is cystocele and possible rectocele. Possibly even mild uterine prolapse. Does anyone have recommendations for a Dr in the Adelaide area, preferably the Northern Adelaide area. Bad me, have avoided my post 6 week checkup because I was too embarrassed to have my local GP looking up there. :/ I'm not too uncomfortable. I can see what appears to be a bulge inside my vagina, which I am assuming is the cystocele.

My last baby was born 13 weeks ago, and I only started noticing it after dtd last week.  Labour was about 2hr 45 minutes, with a 5minute 2nd stage and 5 minute 3rd stage.
