I am Incredibly Uncomfortable

 have a prolapsed bladder and bowel.  For those that don't know, that means my internal organs are trying to pus out through my vagina and turn the damned thing totally inside out.  It's a menopause thing, so many of you may get to experience this in the future.

I see the uri-gynecologist on Friday and I'm getting more and more uncomfortable every day.  I can hold it all in with my pelvic floor muscles, which takes some concentration and energy.  But when I move my bowels, that's when it's bad.  This morning it's almost to the point of "I'm crowning" every time I move my bowels.  And god forbid I sneeze or cough while on the toilet.  Then all hell really breaks loose.  And I have wicked allergies.

Theres not much point to this post, other than a little woe is me.  I'd love to hear from anyone who has been through this and come out the other end.  Am I ever going to be able to have sex again?

It isn't just a menopausal thing, my cousin had that when she was in her late 20's. She had to have surgery to correct everything.

This is on my "con" list of having a hysterectomy. I know not every woman who has a hysterectomy experiences this, but it is a risk.

That's not really a "normal" menopause thing. It can happen at any age, especially after having children.

I guess I'm out of the loop because of all the symptoms I've heard women lament about regarding menopause, I've never heard of this being commonly related to it.

My mom got a prolapsed uterus when she hit menopause. Apparently after she had her last baby, it never shrunk down to normal size and just kind of "folded" over inside her. Then it tried to come out. She had a hysterectomy.

Super-fucking-wonderful, right? Like us women don't have to deal with enough shit. It's like getting one last good kick in the ovaries before getting old and dying. Proof, if there is a God, He is a man. Lol
