Hi. Nice to have a clear idea of what you want. And this thing is going to help you. Prolapsed uterus needs removal and also a repair of a cystocele and/ or rectocele. If you explain this situation to your operating surgeon he/ she will be happy to have surgery in a fashion to suit your desires. You can have sex after surgery. It may be the choice of the surgeon to decide whether to keep cervix or not( old school of thought says cervix plays a part in sexual satisfaction of a male- not of female). Ovaries at your age must have already been atrophied. So go ahead , discuss fully with your operating surgeon. I hope this has helped you.
