There are a couple of ongoing threads about this type of surgery here and here

I've just been told I need surgery for a prolapse following a radical hysterectomy 4 years ago. It's not something I'll be looking forward to but I've put up with the problems for at least 3 years so I'll look forward to getting it sorted.

The examinations are never nice but I tend to find the thought of them worse than the reality.

I hope your appointment goes ok todaysmile

Thanks will have a look at those links.

Sorry to hear you need the surgery too, like you say though better than continuing to put up with it for more years to come!
