Pelvic floor: Dedicated therapy for the pelvic floor can help with prolapse, and or bowel and bladder muscular control/incontinence. Please ask your urologist what the specific reason was. In the future, it is always good to ask your doctor why he makes a certain decision. Make sure you understand your diagnosis, and recommended treatment. Ask questions to be informed about your own health!
