Bladder, bowel or rectal prolapses are conditions pertaining to the same big picture of pelvic organ prolapse. The vagina is normally a virtual space without content. It is therefore in gravitational orthostatism the point of weakest resistance. Any defect in the support of neighboring organs will allow them to push into the vagina, changing its shape and direction. The rectum could also fall down through the anus. The discomfort is obvious and adds to the functional compromise of every displaced element.
Again we emphasize on the correct and integrative judgment of the assessing physician, as no pelvic organ is anatomical and functional independent of the others. Please feel free to ask us anytime for further details related with your concerns and we will offer you the most qualified assistance at your choice ranging from second opinions to fully integrated medical and surgical management.
