Hi all, I am a 65 year old women, had a hysterectomy in my 20's...hernia operation about the same time (20's). I have had a number of bladder infections with blood. In order to void I have to lean forward. (I've been telling doc. about that part for years) About two months ago I started to hurt in my vagina/pelvic area. It was after an especially terrible time with constipation. I think something happened inside. I have never heard of prolapse and when I was looking for answers this problem came up. I feel in my heart that I have a prolapse but not sure which kind....I think it may be both bladder and bowel. I've been waiting until my 65th birthday (when I will have medicare to help with $$) to get an evaluation. What I was surprised at was the lack of bloggers/forums that are current (many post were 2005 or ???) The information is all the same as far as what doctors are posting but it isn't enough information. Are there other sites that can help fill in the types of symptoms you experience..type of pain, severity & more. It would be nice to talk to women my age that have had hysterectomies and are experiencing some of the types of symptoms I’m having. I need to know if I can walk and how many pounds I can lift..things like that. So many questions!!! Thanks in advance for your help.
