Discussion of treatments for Cystocele:
Treatment options range from no treatment for a mild cystocele to
surgery for a serious cystocele. If a cystocele is not bothersome, the
doctor may only recommend avoiding heavy lifting or straining that could
cause the cystocele to worsen. If symptoms are moderately bothersome, the
doctor may recommend a pessary--a device placed in the vagina to hold the
bladder in place. Pessaries come in a variety of shapes and sizes to allow
the doctor to find the most comfortable fit for the patient. Pessaries
must be removed regularly to avoid infection or ulcers.
Large cystoceles may require surgery to move the bladder back into a
more normal position and keep it there. This operation may be performed by
a gynecologist, a urologist, or a urogynecologist. The patient should be
prepared to stay several days in the hospital and expect to take 4 to 6
weeks for a full return to a normal life.
Estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) may be recommended for
postmenopausal women. This can help strengthen the muscles around the
vagina and bladder. ERT may be used alone, with a pessary, or before and
after surgery. The patient should be informed about advantages and
possible risks of taking estrogen.
