Pelvic Floor Prolapse surgery scheduled for 8/16. Concerned abt anesthesia & procedure involving injection of material to create uplift for cystocele & rectocele.  Doctor says considerable pain should be expected.  Recovery period usually 3-4 weeks.

Should I cancel the surgery & live with the prolapse?  

Recent Symptoms

For the past 6 weeks or so, I have been experiencing the following symptoms: cramping of leg & thigh muscles; tingling & numbness of the toes & fingers, especially the 3 outer digits.  The former occurs late in the evening; the latter occurs early upon rising and after sitting for a prolonged period during the day.

I saw a general practitioner yesterday.  He scheduled a blood test for Vitamin B deficiency and thyroid check.  Tonight I will have an MRI of the brain.
