A prolapse can be a common medical condition, especially among women who have given birth, and is due to the tissues supporting the pelvic muscles becoming weak. The forces bearing down on the pelvis and uterus are stronger than the muscles holding them up which leads to the prolapse itself. Luckily, prolapse surgery can solve this issue for you and help get your life back to normal.
What to expect from life after prolapse surgery
Whatever type of prolapse you have and the surgery needed to correct it, we are confident here at The Pelvic Clinic that you will experience great benefits from undergoing the procedure. Our surgeon, Mr Jonathan Broome, is an expert in his field and has seen just how fabulous life after prolapse surgery can be, from the patients he has treated.
The number one thing to expect is that you will get your quality of life back and be able to fully enjoy yourself again. Any pain or discomfort related to the prolapse will have been eliminated by the procedure, leaving you to return to how your life was pre-prolapse.
It can help you get healthier.
If you suffer from a prolapse, then it can severely limit some of the leisure activities you can do, particularly in relation to exercising. After prolapse surgery and the relevant recovery time, you should be able to take part in any exercise you like which will, in turn, benefit your future general health. This can even be true for past-times such as horse-riding which would be too painful prior to prolapse surgery.
Many ladies can return to doing the things they love the most more quickly than they anticipated. For others who are of child-rearing age, they can consider having another child – as a few of Mr Broome’s patients have decided to do. However, there is still a period of convalescence required by all.
Remember to take it easy at first.
As with all surgery, you must follow the recovery advice post-surgery to ensure you heal fully. Don’t lift anything heavy for around 6 weeks and drink plenty of water along with eating plenty of fruit and vegetables. If you happen to develop a cough, then see your GP straight away as this can cause a strain on the ligaments within your body.
