Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you are having prolapsed bladder
how old are you?
are you having problems with urination or pain?
have you tried to do kegel exercises to help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles?
what questions do you have for me?
no, it is definitely normal
but is common as women get older
especially if they have had many children.
surgery can be difficult to impossible in a patient who is 80 years old.
some patients who have bad bladder prolapse, can have rectal prolapse as well with the rectum which can push into the vaginal canal and press down.
so avoid constipation and hard stool
kegel exercise can prevent rectal prolapse and worsening bladder prolaspe
