Discussions that mention estrace

Cancer: Bladder board


Hi I have an appointment, not til July 14 with my GYN. (usually a 6 week wait to get in) so I am going to my pcp/nurse pract this afternoon.
I believe I have cystocele & rectocele. I could feel the rectum prolapse off & on, specially during an IBS flare up. Then had terrible pelvic pain all last week. Couldn't sit, hurt like crazy, standing was pressure, that downward pull feel. Now I feel a bulge in the front of the vaginal wall. I need to apply estrace cream with an applicator 3 x week & that is very uncomfortable. That's when I realized something was going on there too.

I am 52, had my uterus removed at age 44. Went through meno age 45 til just last year. So there I was, thinking all the *female problems* were behind me. Now this...

I hope I can post later, after I get back from the dr.

I would appreciate any insight any of you have on this.
Thanks
