The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
I have a prolapsed bladder they gyro said I could have a bladder sling are there any risks and if I don't have surgery will it get worse?
Bladder: Hopefully your md is going to discuss the risks with you. There are risks with every surgery. You should have a lengthy discussion with your md and receive a written consent form to review as well. Yes, the sling has risks. Have you spoken to a urogynecologist about this?

Pessary, exercise: Options for women with cystocele are limited. Cystocele or dropped bladder is a form of pelvic organ prolapse (pop). Think of this as a type of hernia involving weakness of supportive layers surrounding the vagina. Options are: live with it, wear a vaginal pessary to "prop it back it" to provide comfort, perform pelvic muscle exercise (pme) or undergo surgical correction. ...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
Depends: With a laparoscopic approach, many surgeons will do the procedure as an outpatient or just an overnight stay. In complicated cases or an open procedure, that changes according to the situation. After a straightforward case, I usually tell people to take 3-4 days off and no strenuous activity for 2 weeks. ...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

Best to see a urologist specializing in female urology. ...Read more
