I've had a full hysterectomy also. Polycystic Ovary syndrome was the culprit in my case, Both of my ovaries went cystic and stopped working, about 15 years or so apart from each other. The first was infected and leaking. It almost killed me. After the second time, the doctor just took it all out. I didn't have any type of prolapse but I know others who have. Bladder prolapse is actually a symptom of a genetic condition I may have called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. www.ednf.org and wikipedia both have lists of symptoms of EDS. It's a genetic connective tissue disorder. I'm mentioning this here both because it lacks awareness severely and just in case it may help someone with these issues.
I got rid of my uterus and cervix...it caused great pressure prolapsing into my vagina which also caused pressure on my bladder...dont ruin your bladder women. if your uterus prolapses and you have bladder prolapse your problems and comfort can be compromised...my bladder bulge was so prolapsed that I could feel it move...the real problem was since I had had a tubal ligation in 1976 when my uterus started prolapsing my health care providers should have recommended to me to have it out.....did they in the 1980's...not they did not even care to tell me that uterus and bladder prolapses could be very dangerous....no wonder we cant trust.
I had the full hysterectomy also remiving the ovaries and the tubes. I had a fibroid the size of a volley ball.
The surgery greatly improved my life.
The word on this needs to get out, so thnk you for the post. The more information women have on this issue the better.
Thank you for the article...
I don't know much about hysterectomies. I do know i never plan on getting one unless my life depended on it that is.
I have two close friends who had these done. One was in her early 30s at the time, the other was 40. they both needed them, so choice was not an option for them. One thing they've both said is since they're hysterectomies is they've had a hard time controlling their weight. The important thing for them is it did save both of them, so weight isn't Important.
