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.

How to Program your Kegel8 for Anal Use

Most users find the comprehensive range of programmes on the Kegel8 sufficient for their needs; however some Clinicians have personal programmes they like to use.

On the Kegel8 programmes PC1, PC2 and PC3 are 'spare', this means they are not pre-programmed and they have been left free for you or a Clinician to programme them for your particular needs.
