Prolapse in women. Is this possible?

Some part of my anatomy that should be and always was internal and is now external; what is it? What needs to be done?

Yes, it is possible. It occurs years after childbirth and after menopause. It is called prolapse. The first step is to see a urologist. There are many options to correct it, such as pessary placement and surgery. Unfortunately, there is no magic pill to help. A pessary is used to lift the part back into the vagina that fell. Surgery is available to also place the part back to a better position.

I'm a 69-year-old who had urethra reconstruction surgery, just over 1 1/2 years ago. I've had two dilatations. I believe scare tissue maybe the problem, but I'm not a doctor. I was hoping a stent would be a possible solution. I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago. My local doctors recommend reconstruction again, does not make sense unless something is done differently.
