Prolapse can be relieved by the use of a pessary on occasion or by surgical correction. The most common procedure is the sacrospinous fixation. The best thing for you to do is see a Gyn for further evaluation. With vault prolapse it is often best to seek out a Gyn that specializes in surgery or robotics, although most generalists can help. Hope this helps. DrG

It's not uncommon for a women to have one type of pelvic floor surgery and then have another similar problem. 20-40% of women who have one surgery for these issues end up with another during a lifetime. See an experienced Urogynecologist for an evaluation.
