I have a prolapsed bladder. I feel awful. I don’t know if it is normal to have discharge. I’m having a bad one. I have bowel problems also. I had large bowel removed 16 years ago. I don’t know what to do!

I am 65, after removal of complex mass, as well as right ovary. The gynecologist advised that I must have a hysterectomy due to prolapse, as well as mesh to lift the bladder. This was confirmed by urologist after scan. The pain and discomfort in my pelvis area is due to this. I still work and am an active person. The procedure will be vaginal, apparently the recovery time is quicker. Must admit that I fear the unknown.

I just had surgery to repair a prolapsed bladder and uterus repair as both were falling out. It was an awful experience. I was asleep for two hours, and the doctor put cadaver patch which upset the nerves causing pain in my left leg, leaving part of my left leg and buttock numb. Doctor's do not use meshes or string anymore. They use cadaver patches. It has been three weeks past now, and I have little pain in the leg. The doctor wants to give me a shot of Novocain into the vagina to offset the nerve pain, but I am worried the numbness will forever remain.

I am having a bladder repair operation for a prolapsed bladder through my existing Caesarian scar, a 15 cm cut and was wondering if it will be ok to fly 4 weeks later for a totally relaxing break.
