I am 65 years old, and I will be having surgery in January to repair a Cystocele. I have been having problems for about 24 months with incontinence caused by the Cystocele, and my doctor is of the opinion that I am a good candidate for surgical repair. They will be doing a sling for the bladder and a mesh insert for the cystocele. From what I understand so far, the biggest problem with the surgery is that a catheter will likely be required for a day or two (my doctor says worst case scenario would be a week or two) after the surgery. I'm not looking forward to this! I'll let you guys know how it goes.
