Can someone tell me a bit more about uterine prolapse and whether I can have another baby?

I've been to see a consultant at the hospital. He says I have "not much of a prolapse" but that the 4 hour pushing phase (because the controller wouldn't send an ambulance for ages!!) has done permanent damage to my muscles/ligaments. Oh and I have scar tissue from a 3rd degree tear that'll need fixing.

They are going to do some urinary etc tests because of poor pelvic floor function...but the word prolapse has me a bit freaked.

Does this mean I shouldn't have more kids? (only had the one) What are they likely to suggest in the way of operations etc? If I did get pg again, what would the implications be?

I know it's a lot of questions but it would really help me to understand what's going in, if you could help with answers, please.

My grandmother had a prolapse, but she didn't have a repair, she had something called a ring pessary that held everything in. I don't know about the implications for future pregnancies as she was past childbearing age when it happened to her after 6 children, as far as I know there are repair operations available, when you have another appointment could you ask some questions or if your GP is sympathetic pop in and see them.
