I had prolapse surgery and now uterus has fallen again. Is there a reason it wasn't removed? Was not given an answer. I dread a second surgery..

I had prolapse surgery and now uterus has fallen again.  Is there a reason it wasn't removed?  Was not given an answer.  I dread a second surgery..

Prolapsed uterus: Im sorry to hear of your prolapse recurrence. Uterine prolapse is not a problem with the uterus rather the supportive ligaments that are damaged. Removing the uterus alone does not prevent prolapse from recurring rather restoring support to the top of the vagina and uterus. A Urogynecologist can offer options that will best suit you for this problem. ...Read more

Had prolapse surgery 5 yrs ago and now uterus has dropped again.  Surgery is more complicated now.......how effective is a pessary and how bothersome?

Effective: Pessaries are effective but do have to be removed for intercourse and for cleaning and tend to cause a discharge and odor if not cared for properly. I have several patients who remove and reinsert them themselves and others who have to come in and have me do it. I would recommend you see a urogynecolgist who specializes in these things and discuss your options. ...Read more
