|i'm a 52 yr old woman with uterine and bladder prolapse following a viral cough that was so severe I actually felt my uterus collapse. I'm having difficulty in deciding the best surgical procedure to have since i've scanned the internet and there is divided opinion as to hysterectomy versus preserving the uterus and pinning it back up. I've learned that some professionals believe the bladder is dependent on the uterus especially in the case of prolapse, and that if hysterectomy is performed, at some later date, the bladder will fall again and cause trouble.
All this just happened about 3 weeks ago, I have a pessary in the meantime, and now, I am experiencing bladder infection due to the pessary. A rock and a hard place. The doctor I see wants to do abdominal hysterectomy with a&p repair, but i'm now not so sure.
I'm also living in new jersey. The doctor I want to see has left the hmo I am insured with, leaving me with no reliable alternative for a second opinion.
Have you had the surgery? How has your situation turned out?
