Stop suffering from pelvic pain or urinary incontinence with pelvic floor surgery in Katy, TX

Pelvic Floor Surgery at Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Medicine in Katy Tx Area

“Mommy bladder” and other pelvic issues are topics that women joke about after they have kids, but their real-life consequences can cause pain and embarrassment. Many women suffer for years before seeking treatment for pelvic floor disorders because they are uncomfortable talking about their symptoms with their doctor. Dr. Taryll Jenkins at Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Medicine in Katy, TX is an expert in diagnosing and treating pelvic floor disorders and urinary incontinence with surgery and other measures and can help start you on the road to recovery from your symptoms.

Conditions that pelvic floor surgery can treat

There are two conditions that pelvic floor surgery is typically used to treat:

  • Prolapsed uterus: This occurs when the uterus is no longer able to be supported by the muscles and tissues in your pelvis and it starts to put pressure on the vagina or to push through the opening in the vagina. It can cause unpleasant symptoms such as the inability to empty your bladder fully; pulling, heaviness, or aching in your pelvis or abdomen; and frequent urinary tract infections.
  • Urinary incontinence: When your pelvic muscles and tissues are weakened, your bladder may drop into your vagina and cause accidental leakage of urine, as well as painful and frequent urination or the sensation of an urgent need to urinate due to the stress placed on your bladder. This weakening can occur due to pregnancy or childbirth, or the natural aging process.

In both cases, pelvic floor reconstruction can help stop your suffering and regain your quality of life.

Prolapsed uterus treatment

If you have a prolapsed uterus, your doctor will typically try conservative measures to treat the condition first, such as changing your diet, reducing the amount of fluid you drink, and losing weight. If other measures fail and your symptoms are severe, your doctor may recommend surgery.

The goal of pelvic floor surgery for a prolapsed uterus is to shift your uterus back into its normal position and increase the support provided by your natural muscles and ligaments so it does not come out of place again. There are several different types of pelvic reconstruction surgery. The type of surgery needed depends on your symptoms and treatment goals, which your doctor will discuss with you. Your recovery time depends on the type of surgery you have, but it usually requires rest from vigorous exercise, sexual intercourse, and heavy lifting for six to eight weeks.

Treatment for urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence can be caused by a variety of issues but living with it every day can have huge effects on your quality of life. Childbirth, hormones, and simple gravity can impact the floor of your pelvis, and if more conservative measures such as Kegel exercises, medication, and physical therapy don’t help restore normal bladder function, your doctor may recommend pelvic floor surgery.

In urinary incontinence, the goal of pelvic floor reconstruction is to relieve your symptoms and improve the function of your bladder without causing any changes in your sexual function. A bladder suspension surgery can be performed to pull your bladder back into place and secure it, so it stays there. Different methods that can be used to perform this surgery and your doctor will discuss the best options for you. It is important to note that the effect of this surgery may not last forever and that symptoms may return at some point, and it does not help with urinary incontinence that is due to urgency rather than physical stress on your bladder. Recovery time for this type of surgery is typically six to eight weeks.

Determining if pelvic floor surgery is right for you You may have suffered for many months or years before consulting with your doctor about treatment for your pelvic floor condition. Your doctor can conduct an exam, evaluate your symptoms, and discuss your treatment goals to help determine if pelvic floor surgery or other options are the right choice for you.

Dr. Taryll Jenkins and his team at Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Medicine are committed to providing personalized and high-quality care for women at all phases of life. Call 855 346 8610 today to schedule a consultation on how you can start relieving your symptoms.
