You know what I am going to say first, then you are going to get the rest.
I am a big believer in the power of self-awareness, and I believe that if we can get to a point where we are able to say “I’m aware of my thoughts and that makes me a better person,” then we can start to get a handle on what we want to do or what we need to do next. For example, I am currently pregnant with my third child, and I already know the first.
It’s true, I am aware that I am having a baby, and I am aware that I have a bladder infection. My bladder is completely obstructed, and I am so nauseated that I am having trouble getting out of bed.
The thing is, I am not fully aware of what it is that I am dealing with. I know that I have a bladder infection, but I don’t know what it is. I am not sure if it is a bacterial infection or if it’s something else, but it is what it is. It’s a very common problem and there are a number of treatments for it. My doctor just said that I need to be more aware of what is going on with me.
Having a bladder infection does mean that you are more likely to experience pelvic floor dysfunction, which can cause pain and bleeding. It also means that you may have to undergo a pelvic exam. There are a number of treatments for uterine prolapse, including things like surgical mesh implants, but they can be expensive and potentially risky.
The one thing I’ve learned from my urogynecologist is that the chances of success are not high for any of the treatment options. But what about the risks? Well, the risks are generally minor, since most of the treatments are for symptoms, not complications. But how much you can take may depend on how severe your prolapse is, and how much pain you are experiencing.
After a year of treatment with my urogynecologist, we found that we could do a home visit to the doctor if we were experiencing uterine prolapse. That’s when it hit me that I might be pregnant. Sure, my prolapsed uterus is not pregnant, but the symptoms I was experiencing, and how far along I was with my pregnancy, were too. We were able to find a solution for me to make it all go away for a bit.
After a year of watching my urogynecologist, he was finally able to remove a prolapsed uterus, and after six months of weekly home visits with a urogynecologist, I was finally able to go to the doctor and get my prolapsed uterus fixed.
I was lucky. About 50% of women with uterine prolapse don’t have a cure, especially if they have had it for a long time. There’s a cure for this and it’s called a robotic-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy. It’s a surgery in which your uterus is cut open and you are able to go through the same surgery with a robot.
The reason that its called a robotic-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy is because this is basically the same as a laparoscopic myomectomy, only this time you are going through the surgery with a robot. The main difference is that you are not cutting your uterus open (as you would with a laparoscopic myomectomy), but instead, you are cutting it open and inserting a camera inside. It’s basically the same surgery, but with a robot.
