I would like to know what to expect right down to all of the details? The Doctor has gone over most of the details. But I would like to know does anyone that has had this surgery had a good recovery? And is this surgery real painful?
The specific type of surgery will depend on:
Degree of prolapse
Desire for future pregnancies
Other medical conditions
The women's desire to retain vaginal function
The woman's age and general health
There are some surgical procedures that can be done without removing the uterus, such as a sacrospinous fixation . This procedure involves using nearby ligaments to support the uterus. Other procedures are available.
Often, a vaginal hysterectomy is used to correct uterine prolapse. Any sagging of the vaginal walls, urethra, bladder, or rectum can be surgically corrected at the same time.
You are best to ask your doctor if there is anything specific you are concerned about.
I had this surgery and according to the many others I have had the pain was not too bad. You of course have to expect some discomfort. I did not have an inscension(cut) as I do not suppose you will. The most pain I have had with this and since is during intercourse. My surgery was a couple of years ago and at the time as I am not a young woman the doctor warned about this.I have to have plenty of lubercation and still have some pain, although not enough to quit.
