Hi,
Thanks for query,
It seems you might have mild cystocele or mild uterine prolapse.
This is the reason you got urine problem.
If these problems are there pelvic floor exercise will not work,
Consult gynaec and get diagnosed.
oK AND BYE.

Yes this happens. Even I had similar problems after my delivery for few days. I reported this to my doctor, she advised these pelvic floor exercises.

I am a 62 year old female. Had a total hysterectomy 30 years ago. I had a bladder sling done about 15 years ago. For the past 10 years I have experienced sever pelvic floor pain. The doctor said I had IC and I have been taking Elmiron for several years. Did not help the pain. The pain is the only indictor I had for IC. The pain is much more intense lately. Went to an Urologist today. The cystoscope procedure said I had a healthy bladder and unless the Elmiron helps, stop taking it. What actions should I now take? The pressure feels like a bowling ball is pressing on my pelvic floor. Sometimes so pain, it stops me in my tracks. Thank you

Hi Doctor, I have an anal fissure that has not healed after 5 months and keeps opening up. One of the obstacles to healing I think is a tight pelvic floor. I have gone through the traditional fissure-healing steps of ointments, suppositories, fiber, baths, even having a Botox injection. My question is: Is there something I can take over the counter that will sufficiently relax my pelvic floor muscles? It seems that my stool is not the problem--it s normal from what I can tell. It s really the tight pelvic floor muscles that make it hard to go. It feels almost as if the rectum is pinched shut. What do you suggest?

I m 83, had a hysterectomy after uterine cancer and radiation therapy when I was in my mid 40 s. After urgency and pain in urinating I had a cystoscopy and they discovered non cancer red spots. Am undergoing pelvic floor therapy and doses of Estrace, which is painful to me. I ve asked to be taken off the Estrace. I need to know which foods i can eat without discomfort. It seems everything causes me pain.

Hullo Doctor - My mother s TLC count is 26000. She has diverticulitis and one or two perforated but sealed naturally. Her urine and blood cultures are sterile. Amikacin and Doripenem is being administered for the past 8 days yet her TLC count has been increasing. Also Enoxapain is being given as she suffered from a minor stroke. She is on liquid and semi solid diet though she can consume little. However improvement there as she was not being able to drink more than a sip of water 3 days ago - now she has half a bowl of soup and few sips of juice throughout the day. Fever sometimes reaches 100 but not beyond. Passes stool after taking Movicol at night. My question- are we on the right track? Why is the TLC count going up? What more can be done?
