I went to the doctor yesterday and he said my bladder had fallen. I might need surgery. Anyone ever heard of this or had this? I am a bit scared and extremely worried as I cannot take time off of work! help!!

My friend had this happen and she had the surgery to correct it. She also had a hysterectomy at the same time of the bladder correction and she was off work for a couple of months, but I think that was because it was two surgeries in one. And as far as I know the way she explained it was it was caused by heavy lifting or exertion while lifting and we work in a nursing home. She's been doing this for over 16 years....Oh and if they tell you to take a break and not lift and all that...do what they say, she could not sit still when she got home and I think she had to have the surgery a second time. Check out the mayo clinic for information on this. They are very helpful and the web site is packed with loads of health information.
