cystocele surgery

Hey to anybody out there. My mom is 70 years old and her doctors are talking to her about surgery for a cystocele. They want to do an operation to lift the bladder using some type of mesh. I am trying to find someone else who has had this operation done. I need to know if it was succesful or not, and whether there were any complications after surgery. I'm concerned due to her age and I don't want her to have a surgery that may not even help.
Any info on this topic will be appreciated.. Thanks!!!

Re: cystocele surgery

My grams had that a few years ago when she was 74. She had no complications it just took a little longer to heal because of her age. She's had a lot of problems down south since her hysterectomy though in 1960's and unfortunatly last year she was fitted for an external brace too. It fits inside her vagina, sort of like a diaphragm I guess. The two braces help to hold everything in place rather well. Good luck with your mom!
