Yes, enjoy trip: Frustrating to have prolapse recur so soon after surgery. Bladder prolapse is rarely dangerous unless you can't pee. If the sponge is helping, enjoy trip and see a urogynecolgist when you get back. ...Read more

Heavy bleeding (a pad an hour) and severe pain 3 weeks after bladder prolapse surgery from lifting a bookcase.6 days ago. The bleeding wasn't constant until yesterday. The er dr said the bleeding is from the exam. What can I do at home for this?

Call surgeon now!: Please call your surgeon now! A pad an hour of bleeding is not from an "exam." If you are still bleeding a pad an hour and cannot reach your surgeon, go back to the ER. I would insist on a surgical consult in the ER if the ER doc does not give you a satisfactory explanation or do appropriate lab work or other studies. ...Read more

I: I am sorry that you are having to go through this. Bladder prolapse surgery is fairly common, and most women get very good results from it. Bladder prolapse occurs after the muscles weaken around the bladder and vagina, often after childbirth. Please be sure you are seeing a board certified gynecologist or urologist for your surgery. Be sure and carefully follow the post-operative instructions regarding rest and lifting, and don't return to early to your regular activities. I am sure you will do fine, and I wish you the best. ...Read more

I had gall bladder surgery 2 weeks ago, I want to know what the recovery is before I can play racquet ball. How long before a person can play a vigorous active, such as, raquet ball after having your gall bladder removed.

While: While the general rule of thumb is 6 weeks, it can be shorter if it was done laparoscopically, if you are in otherwise good health and was relatively active before - it so, even as short as 2 weeks is possible. However if you are on other medications, such as corticosteroids, that may interfere with wound healing, it may take longer. In addition, if there is any redness or drainage from the wound, if you have other medical problems, such as diabetes, you have kidney or liver disease, history of poor healing, then you will also need longer period of time. As with any recovery after surgery, you need to resume activity in a graded manner, starting off lightly and increasing as you tolerate. ...Read more
