Hysterectomy and bladder prolapse

Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy and bladder prolapse


I had a hysterectomy September 2005 for Ovarian Cancer which included a ressection of my bladder and bowels because of spread of disease. I am 28yrs old and have frequent pain in my bladder, which I have attributed to the uretic stents I have because of a ureter blockage. My question is, how concerned do I have to be about my bladder after a hysterectomy? By removing all those organs, does it leave the bladder with no support? Thank you in advance for your answer.

I have'nt been through this myself but I would look at all of your options and really talk with your Dr. A hysterectomy is surgery of course and will last a life time. Ask your Dr if there is a way to keep your uterus and correct this problem. Keep us up to date on how your doing and take care.
the vagina then supports the bladder and urethra (urine tube) in the front, and pushes back on the rectum in the back. Weakness in the front wall of the vagina leads to a bulging of the front wall out through the vaginal opening, and usually the bladder bulges out with the front wall. That is sometimes called a cystocele. When there is weakness of the back wall of the vagina, the back wall bulges out, and the rectum usually is behind the bulge. That is sometimes called a rectocele.

I am a 54 year old female and have been diagnosed with bladder prolaspe,(cystocele). I am experiencing some pressure and some pain.. I had a complete hysterectomy in my early thirties. I believe that I brought on this condition by jumping on my trampoline (rebounder) even though I wasn't on it for more than 5 minutes at a time over a period a few weeks off and on.. It was during my jumping on my trampoline that I felt pressure and pain so I made an apt. with my family Dr.
So now the day after Thanksgiving it fell far enough that the same doctor sent me to a Uro/Gyn to have it out......and now there was cystocel and rectocel to go along with prolapse, and vaginal repair. I have had severe back pain since this started.....it is gone. I never for a minute thought that was the cause. Go figure. My ovaries wont help too much as far as bones....since I already have high risk osteoporosis.......I decided not to let that slow me down...........
I already had a hysterectomy and oopherectomy years ago and if I do need surgery, how long of hospital stay is required and recovery period needed before I can go back to work.
Hi, this sounds like exactly what happened to my mom!! Her bladder prolapsed after her hysterectomy and now has the same problem you have with her intestines and the mesh from the bladder sling is coming through her vaginal wall. She's scared to have more surgery and her doctors have no answers. Please contact me if you can. I know it's been awhile since you posted this but I'd like to know how you are doing and if you had the other surgery or not. Thank you!!
I am scheduled to have a vaginal hysterectomy and bladder sling surgery in the near future. I have two questions that are of concern to me. First, is it absolutely necessary to have a catheter after the bladder surgery? Any other options? I have heard nightmares about it and don't want to go through the agony if there is an option. Second, my doctor is planning to use pigskin to hold back the bladder.
I had horrible back pain from 2001 when I first noticed prolapse of uterus. I had hysterectomy and repair to bladder and posterior on Feb 5th and guess what....no back pain now. SO I am thrilled!
I also have a prolapsed rectum, bladder, and uterus. My gyn will only do the surgery if I have a hysterectomy because of my prolapsed uterus. I don't want a hysterectomy at 55. He said it like it was clipping my fingernails. Like it was no big deal. He also gave me premarin vaginal cream and told me to us it. I don't want to use it because my sister died of breast cancer at age 61. I don't know what to do. Is there other ways of dealing with a prolapsed uterus besides a hysterectomy?
I've been diagnosed with a bladder prolapse and a rectal prolapse. I'm looking for any information that may be of help. Do not want to go through any surgery - what are my options??
frequency every hour, pain in lower abdomen, incontinence, dribbling after standing and gripping pains in my bowell before and after stools. The diagnosis was vault prolaspe and was sugested surgery or a pessarie.
I did have a hysterectomy because of severe prolapse and bladder prolapse which they put in that transvaginal mesh. BIG MISTAKE, it eroded throughout my lower pelvic area, but anyways i do believe thats what you are going through, prolapse and YES it is extremely painful to me also and I too am battling my pain doctor trying to get proper relief and she has said the same exact things to me, addiction, duh!, but living with the pain is not easy or fair, quaility of life stinks.
I also heard somewhere that after a hysterectomy you are more suseptable to bladder prolapse...I had asked my surgoen why he left a piece of my cervix and he said it aids in keeping the other organs in place...not sure if leslee had her cervix removed but that is what I was told...
i had vaginal hysterectomy and i have servere pain in my vagina i urinating all the time am 3 months post op and have no infections showing in my water i do have spinal pain and adamin pain probably coz urinating all the time its feels like i have a prolase bladder
I have been in pain for over 2 years and have recently been diagnoised with IC and a uterine prolapse. I tried bladder instalations since November 09 and have recently had botox injected into my bladder since the instaltions were making me much sicker. The pain is about 50 % less than before the botox but I still have a very strong pain in the right side of my vagina as well as groan and back pain.
I have a herniated rectum, probably from being constipated so long, and a prolapsed bladder and uterus. The uterus and cervix will be removed, ovaries, if needed, and then the bladder and the rectum will be repaired as needed. Mesh will be used to sling the bladder up where it is supposed to be. I will also be have a little bit of plastic surgery down there. My surgeon does this all.
there is a school of thought that retaining the cervix helps to prevent bladder prolapse ( makes sense) I suppose the only con would be possibility of cervical problems , later, Your "passing blood" do you mean rectal? I hope you reported that to your doctor, a very important symptom. what type of hysterectomy, a standard incision, lap, or DaVinci Robotic?
Do a search for vaginal prolapse and pessaries and the types will be shown and more talk about them. Lastly, if your prolapse is mild to moderate, Kegel exercises (do a search on that as well as it's listed step by step how to do it and you can do them anywhere without anyone knowing you're doing them :)) will help keep these muscles tighter. It won't reverse the prolapse but, it can help to keep it from progressing further.
I had a total vaginal hysterectomy (for a uterine prolapse), bowel repair and bladder wall repair on July 7th this year. After five weeks I had one very busy day cooking and also lifted a very heavy pot. Since then I have felt as if my bladder wall has prolapsed again because my labia seem to be flapping against my urethra in a new way. I have no pain. This sensation is not constant and is most apparent when I am tired. Have I given myself another prolapse?
Are you sure its your uterus prolapseing and not the bladder..or you could have andeomyosis it feels like prolapse,,but due to family history you are likely right..no one know your body like you do..Id suggest seeing a urologist also..I had to find my own surgeon for hysterctomy..had bad pain my ovary was attached to my bowel..no one really believed me till they opened me up and saw the addhessions and scar tissue..
I have had a hysterectomy because of Pelvic floor prolapse and then back in for fallen bladder (cystocele)surgery and now I have rectocele and vaginal vault falling in some. One of my main symptoms everytime was pain in my tailbone area.I have all 3 problems in the last 13 months. I do not know whether to go back in or let the pessary help for a while. The pain is somewhat better in tailbone area but lower back pain is so bad now.
