Understanding the Pelvic Floor

The term “Pelvic Floor” refers to the muscles, ligaments, connective tissues, and nerves that support and hold in place the pelvic organs—the bladder, rectum, uterus, and vagina. This complex system not only provides structural support but also plays a crucial role in the proper functioning of these organs.

However, factors such as pregnancy, childbirth, and aging can weaken the pelvic floor muscles and stretch the ligaments, leading to pelvic floor disorders. If you’re grappling with any of these issues and yearn to regain normalcy, live comfortably, and alleviate the discomfort associated with pelvic floor disorders, Dr. Karram is here to help!

Are You a Candidate for Pelvic Floor Surgery?

If you’re experiencing symptoms that interfere with your quality of life, such as a feeling of heaviness or pressure in the pelvic area, pain during sex, urinary or bowel incontinence, difficulty emptying the bladder or bowels, or a bulge in the vagina, you might be a good candidate for pelvic floor surgery. Other factors, such as your age, overall health, and expectations for surgery, will also be considered. You deserve a life free from these symptoms, and Dr. Karram can help. We’ll create a specialized treatment plan for you after a consultation.

The Impact of Pelvic Floor Surgery

Our patients often experience a significant improvement in their quality of life post-surgery. They no longer have to worry about embarrassing accidents, experience pain during sex, and overall, they regain their pelvic floor health for the better.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is this procedure performed?

Pelvic floor surgery varies depending on the patient’s symptoms and individual needs. Some common types include Colporrhaphy and Sacrocolpopexy. These surgeries are typically outpatient procedures, performed under general, regional, or local anesthesia.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Before the surgery, you’ll meet with Dr. Karram to discuss the details of the surgery and make necessary preparations. During the surgery, you’ll be given anesthesia for comfort. After the surgery, you’ll be monitored in a recovery area to ensure stability and absence of immediate complications.

What About the Healing and Recovery Phase?

Recovery is an individual process. You’ll be given a pudendal block to control post-operative pain for the first 18-24 hours, along with other medications. You may apply ice to the vulvar areas and perineum for the first 48 hours to minimize swelling. You’ll need to abstain from sexual activity and exercise for six weeks. After six weeks, you can resume all physical and sexual activities.

When will I see results?

The time it takes to see results varies depending on the type of surgery, the severity of the prolapse, and your individual recovery. Most patients start to see some improvement within a few weeks of surgery, but it may take several months for the full benefits to be realized.

How long do results last?

The results of pelvic floor surgery can last for many years, but there’s no guarantee. The success of the surgery depends on several factors, including the severity of the prolapse, your age and overall health, and your compliance with post-operative instructions. Some patients may need additional surgery in the future.
