For those of you who are either wondering if you have pelvic organ prolapse or have already been diagnosed and are having a hard time deciding whether or not to have surgery, it's truly a good idea to find a urogynecologist to get the facts. There is no right or wrong with whether or not to have surgery, there are good options available for each choice and the bottom line is it is such a personal decision. Typically when the symptoms get too annoying or painful to handle, many women opt for surgery. Often younger women want to wait because they want to have additional children. I had a grade 3 rectocele/cystocele/enterocele repair done in 2008 and have never regretted if for a second. I won't lie, it is a pretty rough surgery if you are having a combination of prolapses repaired, but if you do your research prior to surgery and know what to expect and have everything set that you will need after surgery ready to go b/4 you go to the hospital, the heal curve flows easier.
