Two weeks ago I had this procedure. My goal was tightening of the vagina as well as bladder relief. I am a mother of four children and after having my tubes tied I opted to do this for myself. Initially, I planned to have a cosmetic surgeon perform the surgery. My obgyn referred me to a urologist because of my cystocele repair. I was pleasantly surpized to learn that my insurance completely paid for this procedure. I am grateful. After seeing the urologist, I learned that I had both cystocele and rectocyle.
My procedure included a bladder lift, partial hysterectomy and reconstruction of the vagina both the posterior and anterior walls. I was unbelievably anxious going into this surgery because of the sensitivity of the area being worked on.
Recovery has been simple. Other than having no energy I do not feel like I had surgery. I have already been relieved of the discomfort I had from rectocyle. My vagina looks much tighter. I am looking forward to no more menstation.
I take milk of magnesia and stool softners daily and that is tedious. I have not taken any painkillers since i was released from the hospital. I dreaded the thought of a cathedar but that wasnt an issue. I'm glad I did this for myself. I am now considering labiaplasty in the future.
