Anyone know a good doc?

I live in Elyria, Ohio, and I am looking for a new gynecologist for a second opinion. I have uterine prolapse and I am 27. My current doc feels that a vaginal hysterectomy, leaving the ovaries, would be best for me. He did say I could try ablation, but it only has about a 65% success rate with women my age since the hormones could cause the same problems again later. Right now I am on a water pill to reduce bloating and vicodin on my periods for the pain. Looking for a female doc with a second opinion.

  • I'm sorry, I know no one in the area. I DO know, however, that a hysterectomy is NOT the only solution for a uterine prolapse!

  • You may want to post this question in the Health section, rather than Hobbies & Crafts, as it will probably get more responses there.

  • I heard that slant board excersizes were good for that. So you might google that too!
