I ended up in Hospital on Saturday night during my shift at work :-O I have a pelvic organ prolapse...something I had no idea about until then! So I have a referral to the Gynaecologist or as I call them "Guy in a College" lol! I have to change my diet, lose more weight and do daily pelvic floor exercises. So that is why I ain't been about for a few days. Anyone else have experience of this? Any advice??
As I am only in my early 40s, I am in a little bit of shock. I don't smoke, drink, eat fairly healthy, do lots of walking and would consider myself fairly healthy! I also drink buckets of water too. Thankfully I can still do my walking but have to change a lot in my life as I cannot do heavy lifting, bending, stretching or anything high impact!
I am doing okay physically, still in a lot of pain around my waist and back but I am following what I should do. Just mentally in shock. As my partner says, "It is, what it is!" Apparently about a third of women suffer from this.
