What are the latest treatments for grade IV pelvic prolapse? Any new pessaries?

Age 71 with pelvic prolapse with pessary in place for over 10 years. Discussions with urogynecologist and gynecologist strongly recommended hysterectomy and ovary removal when doing corrective (sling) surgery. I have so far resisted. Don't like possible side effects of surgery--possible urinary and fecal incontinence. Sticking with pessary for now.
