I have had 2 large 9lb babies and I am 31. I am not overweight and I am in good health. After my first baby, I noticed that my insides were slightly coming out of the opening of my vagina. It got better after a while, however post my second child (and after a bad cough) I had it really bad.
I had seen a physiotherapist who recommended exercises which I did religiously, however it wasn't getting better. I went and saw my GP who said that pelvic floor
exercises were not going to fix a double prolapse. I was referred to a gyno and by that stage I no longer had the cough and the prolapse was not as bad. She said that she could do the surgery but didn't recommend it.
I was really upset by her recommendation as she said that if she fixes it now using my own tissue to hold it up, then as I age it will happen again and then they will have to use a type of mesh and if I have the problem post menopause that there won't be any options to fix it.
So I left it at that. On the weekend I was jumping on a trampoline and completely wet myself, not only that, with every bounce it felt like my insides were not being held up. I went to the toilet, fully emptied my bladder, put a pad on and tried again and with every bounce it was the same and within 5 minutes filled the pad.
Do you think that I should be getting a second opinion to have the surgery?
