Hello

I'm a long time MN-er (10 years, crikey where did that go?). I've been unfortunate enough to suffer multiple prolapses following a traumatic birth. Have had a couple of surgeries over the years, the last one being a couple of weeks ago.

I found the, very helpful, and long running prolapse/birth injuries threads on MN a few years ago and they are really helpful and supportive. A kind poster directed me to a FB group run by APOPS (Association for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Support) where there is equally, a whole host of worldwide support. The group is run by a fellow sufferer called Sherrie Palm. She works tirelessly to raise support, speak to clinicians/doctors/gynaecologists/urogynaecologists all over the world discussing many issues surrounding POP including topics such as diagnosis, various treatments, physical therapy to name a few.

For me personally, I had never even heard of the possibility of prolapses pre giving birth, much less how to take steps to try and avoid it etc. And without my heightened awareness since, I would have been unaware of treatment options, what questions to ask, about potential risks etc especially given the current issues surrounding mesh use.

Anyhow, to the point (and thanks for reading thus far). I have started a thread in Site Stuff www.mumsnet.com/Talk/site_stuff/3059452-MN-Can-we-please-support-highlight-this

to ask if MN would consider helping to raise awareness by inviting Sherrie for a webchat. I'd be grateful, if you think it's a good idea, if you could post support on the thread.

Thanks in advance

Shakey - your charming persistence has pushed me over to the other thread (that and I didn't even see this until your most recent bump)

Keep up the good work :D

Shakey15000 Mon 23-Oct-17 20:11:24

@SpaghettiAndMeatballs why thank you blush And a huge thank you for adding support flowers

And I’m not replying just to bump it again... —though it certainly won’t hurt— wink

Shakey15000 Tue 24-Oct-17 21:09:20

A Tenacious Tuesday bump smile

Heartfelt thanks, as always.

Shakey15000 Sat 28-Oct-17 23:10:45

Apologies for the gap in bumping smile Normal service has resumed, nothing to see here except the link to the thread wink

Shakey15000 Mon 30-Oct-17 20:24:59

University Challenge time bump smile

I’m lucky if I answer five in an episode. And they’re mostly educated guesses. Not enough questions on musicals imo.

Shakey15000 Tue 31-Oct-17 23:41:21

Wow. I was going to post a “normal” bump but I’ve just watched the first 4 episodes of The Handmaids Tale. Sobering indeed. And bloody frightening.

Shakey15000 Wed 01-Nov-17 19:03:45

Bath time bump. Which I shouldn’t exactly be having as only 4weeks post surgery but I’m chucking salts in smile

Thanks to anyone who has added support lately flowers

Terrylene Wed 01-Nov-17 19:14:31

Thanks - not seen this thread before. No idea how confused. Keep posting/bumping grin

Shakey15000 Wed 01-Nov-17 22:23:26

@Terrylene Thanks very much smile

Normal bumping to resume tomorrow. Perhaps with an Apprentice theme grin

OR mentioning the fact my LM came to visit me at home today. It's no problem but kind of feels odd. like totally having "work" invade my private space and she didn't bring any chocolates

Shakey15000 Mon 06-Nov-17 22:51:26

Gah, normal bumping didn't resume due to real life getting in the way.

Apologies and many thanks to those who have read the post in Site Stuff (in OP) and added support.

The more the merrier smile

Shakey15000 Tue 07-Nov-17 22:18:17
