Doctor confirmed that I have a prolapsed uterus (is that how you spell it?)

She has refered me to the gynie clinic at the hosipal, she said something about having a sling fitted!

Anybody have any info or experiences they would like to share i.e how do the do the procedure, cut your belly open or up through your foof? blush Recovery time? etc

Many thanks x

Its kind of like having a ribbon to hold the uterus up internally. They do it with keyhole surgery normally, although I think there are now techniques to do it via the fanjo. Recovery time v fast - normally day case surgery.
