I don't know anything about pessaries beyond the name and basic function, but I imagine you'll end up with something similar even if that's not the same. Or they might use surgical mesh to hold things permanently. Either way, I think it's going to be a pretty quick fix and the specialist isn't going to think it's weird or anything. They'll know exactly what you're talking about.

Okay, just curious, but do pessaries work after a hysterectomy too? I don't have a cervix. Would they work the same?

Azulvioleta... LOL I know! I didn't think it was possible and now I am just mortified! I have been trying to get ahold of my doctor all week.

You need to see somebody right away. Call your GYN or the surgeon who did your hysto, explain the situation and they should work you in ASAP. You definitely need to have this looked at, soon. Don't bother with the ER as you need to see a specialist, but don't wait long either.

And now I am going to erase this from my brain..I had a hysto a couple of years ago and DO NOT want to even consider this possibility. La la la la la.

It's incredibly common and always has been. If you want some weird history, Google "pessary." It's one of the world's oldest medical devices.

Thanks. I never realized that it was possible. I try not to sound like a hysterical woman with complaints about everything when I go to the doctor, but I am thinking maybe I should have been less "Hahaha, my vagina is falling out" and a little more "okay, it really hurts too".

May all sentient beings be happy!

Thanks. The doctors office is going to make the appointment and call back. I think I'll just call the female nurse and ask for a fast appointment. Thanks.

Call the gyno and explain that you're having pain and need the appointment moved up. My guess is that you kind of played it down with your GP, so he didn't convey any urgency when he made the referral. If they can't get you in sooner, call Planned Parenthood. They might not be able to treat you without it costing more than you'd pay with your insurance, but they'll know what doctors in town specialize in this issue and they'll know if there's anything you should do yourself while you're waiting for an appointment. They might even be able to pull strings to get you seen by a doctor sooner.

It sounds like you haven't set up your gyno appointment yet? I suggest you call them ASAP and explain the situation. They're not going to squeeze in a new patient for a checkup, but they can probably set up an emergency appointment for you, or refer you to a specialist, or tell you to go to the hospital immediately.

I had a total abdominal hysterectomy 10 years ago. So I went to my doctor yesterday and had the most awkward conversation. It went something like this...

Me: I think I need to see a gyno.
Nurse: Oh? Why do you think that?
Me: I think I karate kicked my hoohah out.

Which lead to a lot of questions and hysterical laughing. We were joking around and what not, which made me feel better BUT, I found out that those lady parts CAN really fall out.

Being as my doctor is a guy... and I would trust him for anything except the neither regions, and I really felt uncomfortable having him look at my parts, and I was too embarrassed after admitting that I might have made my junk protrude and I am too embarrassed to go back... and the GYN appointment still isn't set yet... I have been looking for answers and I can't find them.

It's getting uncomfortable to walk. I am not bleeding or anything but it's really uncomfortable. It's bothers me to sit too. And the bulge is a touch bigger...

At what point does this become a medical emergency? Because I am not going to the ER unless I am heaped at the top of the triage pile or I'm dying. It took me a month to go to the doctor in the first place.

I am such a private person that I always said there is no way I am voluntarily letting anyone check out my stuff unless it's falling out. Only I was being funny... I didn't think it's really happen.

And Now I am wondering... how long is too long to wait to get help while I am waiting for the GYN appointment? Do I wait util I can't stand the pain anymore? Until I can walk into the ER and hold up a mass of stuff and say "this fell out"? Is there some warning sign to look for?

Any advice? Suggestions? Personal experiences?
