Bladder Tacking
01ashley01 posted:
I recently went to my doctor thinking that my uterus was falling out. Come to find out it was my bladder. She instructed me on some excercise to preform and prescribed me some hormones. She also said that Icould have surgery to "tack" my bladder up. My questions are:
How safe is this surgery
Should I have it done?
What is the recovery time?
And what are the pros and cons if I choose to have the surgery?
I can`t seem to get with the excercises and there are times when i can feel my bladder between my labia. Although it is not uncomfortable it is just weird to feel like something is trying to slip out of your body.
I have refrained from any relationships because of this. How do you explain this to a man?!
Would I be able to have a normal sex life afterwards?
I am a seasonal worker and the months of October and November would be a good tome for the surgery. How long before I can return to work after the surgery.
I am cosidering it and just want as much information about how the surgery is done and the effects on the body following the surgery.
Please help!
Thank you.

I had this surgery done in 06. Was good while it lasted but I had caught bronchitis and the harsh coughing placed by bladder back in the leeking mode. Everything else went back to normal about 6 weeks after surgery.
