I was just diagnosed with cystocele, rectocele and uterine proplapse (go big or go home, right?) For those that have had any of this, were you able to return to riding and normal horse care life? I will be calling the urogyno tomorrow for an appointment. I'm just wondering if I should pack it in and forget about riding again, which will be heartbreaking. I had a CSF leak about 6 yrs ago and thought I was going to have to give it up then. TIA

PS being a woman sucks

I don't know anything about any of that, in fact can't even pronounce it.  I do send prayers that all is fixable and that you will be good as new quickly!  Get more than one opinion if at all possible.

Prayers and well wishes your way

Just looking at Google, I would think it would depend on course of treatment.  If they can somehow stablize your interior through surgery, you may have hope to ride again.  I'm not sure you'd want to race again though, simply because of the muscles used to keep you in the saddle would be pulled and strained.  

That's just my Not A Doctor opinion, with some basic anatomy knowledge thrown in.

I had surgery a year ago, I was back to riding first of March an competing in April.  Its not an easy surgery, much harder than I anticipated.  You will be fine, just do what your dr. says.

Did you have all 3 prolapses? 

 

I found a support group and I am relieved to find out there are women who ride who have been able to return to riding both with a pessary and after surgery.

Definitely follow the doctor's orders, I had absolutely no lifting for 8 weeks more than a solo cup. So you need a good support system.  It is a tough surgery but I am glad I did it.  But it does not last forever if you are active as most of us cowgirls are.  Getting it done again soon.

Sorry to hear about that! I have opted to do the robotic surgery since it only has about a 10% failure rate. My dr reccommended it since I am very active and ride. The other surgery has a 30-40% failure rate and I don't want to have to do this twice. I'm not sure about permanent lifting restrictions yet as I have not spoken with the surgeon (yet). I was told no riding for 3 months after surgery.
