Hotline doctor says there are often 'simple solutions'
The light does need to be shined on these issues. My mum had prolapse for seven
years without anyone knowing. It complicated her life in so many ways. We even
took a trip to Hawaii that she couldn't enjoy as she might have. The effects of
the prolapse kept her from going to the beach at all.As soon as we
found out what was wrong (and never before hearing of such a thing!) we sought
medical attention. What a dramatic change it made for her. Restored
confidence. She was much more active in her remaining days.Since
her experience several cousins and an aunt have had repairs and have returned to
more active lifestyles. None of them had ever heard of anyone else with the
problem and were embarrassed to admit it to anyone. The word needs to get out
that someone is not alone in the problem and that there is help.
