How To Know When it‘s Time for POP Surgery? with Sarah Prime - (Part 1)

December 8, 2021

How do you know it’s time to have POP surgery?  

This is a two part series with Sarah Prime, who talks in depth about her decision to have prolapse surgery. Sarah tells us why as a ‘younger’ woman she could no longer live a life like this. Sarah has done her research and has some top tips for the best chance of a positive outcome to navigate her new norm.  

Women living with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) are often presented with three options to manage daily life. 

  1. Physiotherapy
  2. Pessaries 
  3. Surgery 

(4. Live with it the best way you can when the above 3 are not successful.)

Generally surgery is the last option offered to women who’ve finished having children and are much ‘older’. We will check back in with Sarah for part two following her surgery and recovery.
