Private Prolapsed Uterus Surgery Abroad Avoiding NHS Waiting Time
Prolapsed Uterus, The uterus (the womb, in which a foetus develops) is normally held in place inside the pelvis with various muscles and ligaments. Sometimes, because of childbirth or difficult labor and vaginal delivery, these tissues are weakened. As a woman ages and with age-related decrease in the concentration of the hormone estrogen, her uterus can move downward into the vaginal canal, causing the condition known as a prolapsed uterus.
Muscle weakness or relaxation may allow the uterus to sag or come completely out of the body. Prolapsed uterus can be described in the following stages:
- – First degree of prolapsed uterus: The cervix descends downward into the vagina.
- – Second degree of prolapsed uterus: The cervix comes down to the opening of the vagina.
- – Third degree of prolapsed uterus: The cervix is outside the vagina.
- – Fourth degree of prolapsed uterus: The entire uterus is outside the vagina. This condition is also called procidentia. This is caused by weakness in all of the supporting ligaments.
Other conditions are usually associated with prolapsed uterus. They weaken the muscles and ligaments that hold the uterus in place:
- – Cystocele: A herniation (or bulging) of the upper front vaginal wall where a part of bladder bulges into the vagina, which may lead to urinary frequency, urgency and retention.
- – Enterocele: The herniation of the upper vagina along with a segment of small intestine into the vagina. Standing leads to a pulling sensation and backache and is relieved when lying down.
- – Rectocele: The protrusion forward of the back wall for the vagina, along with concomitant bulging forward of the rectum into the vagina. This may make bowel movements difficult to the point where the woman may need to push on the inside of the vagina to empty the rectum.
If uterine prolapse is severe, we would recommend surgery abroad where the treatment will be much cheaper but still has just as high standards as in the UK. Minimally invasive (laparoscopic) or vaginal surgery might be an option depending on your uterus condition.
Prolapsed Uterus treatment can be covered by NHS and can be refunded, if prolapsed Uterus treatment is received in a private clinic abroad. Prolapsed uterus treatment abroad could be alternative you can afford.
It is possible to receive prolapsed uterus pre treatment and after treatment consultation in London.
