She could go to a clinic instead maybe? It needs to be checked. My mum had a prolapse last year and had it operated on and is now 100% better. There was a huge waiting list though so she had to go private. She said it was quite painful and debilitating so it really is worth fixing.

Your mum can ask to see another doctor (woman?) in the practice

its only a very small village and there is only 1 doctor in the practice

agree- get her to go see another gp - it really isn't something she should ignore.

And maybe she should change her gp anyway - if she can't go to him for personal things then he isn't going to be much good as her gp ! Keep him as a friend and get a new gp.

thanx will tell her the only prob is other surgeries wont take people where mum is. will try and get her to go to a clinic even if i have to make the appointment myself and drag her. btw after a prolapse is it still possable to have sex (horrible thought about parents but never mind) as read somewhere it isnt

have convinced my mum to go to docs as after i saw another thread (what do ur bits look like) i saw a link for a pic of a prolapse and emaild it to her think it might have scared her into doing things.

can she see different gp at the same surgery ?
