Prolapsed Uterus - treatment options


Recommended Posts

Has anyone had experience with a prolapsed uterus? If so did meds (estrogen/progrestern) help or did you go with a hysterectomy? Did completing menopause help or was it still as bad? If already in menopause is there really any benefit to not going ahead w/ a hysterectomy?

I've never heard of meds for prolapse. look into a mesh-sling (surgially implanted.) as an option.

You're right - there are actually two problems - I keep forgetting the details. Prolapsed Uterus is one problem and w/ the endometriosis that now has adenomysosis (Sp).

 

very different problems. I've never had endo, so I can't answer that question, but supposedly it does get better with menopause, or Rx that stops your cycle.

But also look into the controversy surrounding the use of the mesh, and tread cautiously.

There's a DVD called First Aid for Prolapse. The Whole Woman is supposed to be a helpful resource site.

eta: ditto on the PT. My mom made some progress in PT dealing w/ incontinence and some pelvic floor issues. Here's a site for finding a PT who is a member of the APTA's section on women's health. There are PTs who have taken coursework in women's health who are not members of the section for women's health, so you could call several outpatient physical therapy practices and ask if they have anyone specializing in women's health, pelvic floor, etc. if there isn't a women's health PT listed in your area on the site below.
