Can Kegals COMPLETELY correct a mild bladder prolapse or cystocele?


I have been diagnosed with mild Cystocele and mild Rectocele. I don't want to wear a pessary and I don't want
surgery. The doctor has not recommended either of those, I just know about them from doing research. She did however recommend kegals and physical therapy. Will these two things treat this problem? I want everything to be the way it was before. Will Kegals do that? Is this something that will get worse?
----------

Not 100 percent sure if they will,,,,But Kegals will not hurt you at all.....so start sqeezing and see what happens.  (+ info)

Will giving birth to a child make my existing cystocele get any worse?


I am 23 years old and have a low to medium grade cystocele. As of right now I have four children, my last was born almost a year ago, and I am currently pregnant again. The cystocele didn't show up until the middle of my last pregnancy. I am wondering if this pregnancy and childbirth will make my problem any worse. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
----------

No it shouldn't have any effect on it.  (+ info)

An embarrassing question about cystocele of the bladder?


Ever since I got cystocele of the bladder and rectocele (mild, stage 1), I do not have good muscle tone (down there) anymore. Am I stuck with being loose, or will Kegals make me strong again? If I have to have surger to correct this I will.
----------

kegals will strengthen the floor of your peritoneal area, but you will need surg to keep the bladder and rectum in place..  (+ info)

Is it safe to get pregnant if you have a mild Cystocele / bladder prolapse?


I have had a mild cystocele for 3 years which i have treated with pelvic floor exercises and weight control, however, i want to have another baby and the problem hasn't quite corrected itself....

The doctor said it should be fine but they might do a caesarian this time round so no more stress is put on the muscles. Has anyone else had this problem, or had another baby with one? I found one website that said c-sections don't really help the problem......

Any answers will be greatly appreciated!!

Is it possible to do a hysterectomy and fix a rectocele/cystocele under a spinal anesthesia?


General Anesthesia always makes me violently ill, and I'm trying to avoid that and any "sedatives" like Versed/Midazolam for an upcoming operation.
How do I get the Dr to agree to this? Any good suggestions?
----------

Yes, it is possible to fix a rectocele/cystocele during a vaginal hysterectomy. This can also be done under spinal anesthesia. But each physician has his or her own "favorite" anesthesia. If your doctor does not accept to do it under a spinal anesthesia, it would be better for you to find another one.  (+ info)

Can a general surgeon remove my gallbladder and fix my rectocele/cystocele at the same time?


Or will I need 2 separate surgeons: 1 for my gallbladder and 1 for the prolapse? Can both procedures be done at the same time if I need 2 surgeons?
----------

You'll need two surgeons but you should be able to have both procedures at the same time. Talk to your surgeons.  (+ info)

How much can you lift after you have had a hysterectomy and a cystocele done?


And do those restrictions ever go away or are you limited for ever?
----------

Do not lift or do excessive exercises or you will tear something that's been repaired. Especially if they tied your bladder up!! I did and tore my bladder loose!!  (+ info)

Is it possible for a virgin to have had a cystocele?


I'm only 19 but i'm scared this is what i've had. If i strain down, it feels like a bulge. But i've read that this is only generally caused by heavy lifting or giving birth etc... But i have done neither of these.
Could it be a tumour pushing down upon my bladder? Please help me.
I have no pain.
----------

go to your obgyn and ask its the only way to know for sure.  (+ info)

Urologist or Gynecologist for cystocele repair?


If and when I decide to get this done, has anyone here had a repair of a cystocele and/or rectocele done? Who is best to see for the procedure? I am a senior citizen, good health. No pain with this but some bothersome symptoms from time to time. I read on medical sites of folks having to have repeat procedures or not having a good outcome with a particular one. I'd like input from this website too. thanks.
----------

u may use either a gynecologist or a urologist for treatment:
