Pelvic Floor Surgery: Prevent, Prepare, and Optimize Success | Kim Vopni
Pelvic floor muscles play an important role in our bodies, and we may not realize how important until we have incontinence, pain, and/or prolapse. A common concern is the root cause of a dysfunction might not be properly addressed causing issues down the line such as the need for surgery or repeat surgery.
Kim Vopni, author of Your Pelvic Floor, is a self professed pelvic health evangelist and is known as The Vagina Coach.She is a certified fitness professional who wants to end the suffering associated with pelvic floor dysfunction.
Kim speaks with Fempower Health on the following about pelvic floor health and surgery:
- Which are the 3 types of pelvic floor dysfunctions?
- What are the signs of a weak pelvic floor and how do you fix pelvic floor dysfunction?
- What are pelvic floor dysfunction treatment options and which pelvic floor dysfunctions might require surgery?
- How do you optimize pelvic floor surgery recovery time and outcomes?
- How successful is pelvic prolapse surgery, and what can you do post surgery to optimize results?
- How do you find the right pelvic floor surgeon?
- Which questions should you ask the pelvic floor surgeon?
- What if you can’t afford a pelvic floor specialist or surgeon?
“I do see a lot of people after the fact who say “I had surgery for this and then I still have this problem or the problem came back” or “I have another problem and then I had another surgery.” People will chase the problem with surgery or pharmaceuticals and aren’t getting to a root cause.” – Kim Vopni
