Prolapsed Bowel Prolapse Surgery - A True Story by Beverley Dale

Prolapsed Bowel Prolapse Surgery - A True Story by Beverley Dale

My name is Beverley Dale, I am 36 years old and I have been living with a prolapsed bowel for too long.I went to hospital in May of this year with heavy periods (this had being an ongoing problem for 2 years). They had tried to use a Mirena to slow the bleeding but this didn't work. Initially I didn't go for my bowel; I think I had accepted this as part of my body. Manual evacuation isn't a pleasant thing but I had enough to worry about so this was put on the back burner.
