Steps to take before the surgery
Your doctor will conduct a physical examination of the vagina to identify the fallen bladder. The vaginal wall, bladder, and lump are assessed during first stage physical examination. The patient should discuss the symptoms to confirm the exact reason. Additional tests will be conducted to assess if there is any more damage in the urinary system.
What happens during the surgery?
The surgical procedure is done under general anaesthesia. A surgical cut is made in the vaginal wall. The surgeon then tightens the tissues between the bladder wall and vaginal wall. The doctor may also remove the extra tissues or use tissue grafts if the tissue lining is very thin. The muscles and ligaments will be strengthened in this procedure.
After the surgery
General anaesthesia may be used during the recovery of the bladder and urethra. The patient has to stay a day or two in the hospital. The recovery period is up to 6 weeks, after which the patient can return to his normal activities.
