Postpartum prolapse ... Please help :(

Hello Everyone!!
Im new to this site (which I'm very glad I found) .
Okay so I'm 19 years old turning 20 on April! ...
I had my first baby boy on August 8, 2012!
He was 7lbs/11ounces. Vaginal birth. 2 hrs pushing (got an epidural)
I did not get cut down there or anything else.
I went home the next day. 3 weeks postpartum
I noticed a bulge down there and freaked out!!
Well I went to a walk-in-clinic (I live in Canada. Edmonton AB by the way)
The doctor told me I had a mild prolapse, & told me not to miss my
6week appointment with my gyn! I went to my appointment september
and gyn confirmed I had a prolapse and sent me to do kegels and it would get better & all that......
I went back on December and it was all the same. I told him that it was bothering me, and it was painful to have sex and That I've been having ALOTTT of trouble with BMs!!
So he said that there was surgery but that it wasnt necessary because my prolapse wasnt that bad... But since it was painful (also get lower back & abdomen pain!!) he sent me to have a ultrasound to see what kind of prolapse i have and im waiting for the results! After that he's going to give me another appointment to see how weak the muscles are...
Anyway sorry this is soo long! But I really need some of your experiences with surgeries WITHOUT mesh!! I want no mesh at all...
Im veryy veryy scared about having surgery... But im also very tired of this... It is very annoiying and painful!!
Please give me some advice / and ur personal experiences with your surgery!
Thank youu very much for your time!
Will keep u posted once I hear the results from the ultrasound (even thou i think I have a cystocele and rectocele 90%sure)

Im now 5 months postpartum & will start college on May
