    My doctors say my pelvic floor muscle is messed up. The best hope is physical therapy for now, but they want me to eventually let the physical therapist (not my gynecologist?) look in and see if I need surgery on the pelvic floor muscle.

    They say it was a combination of traumas, back pain related to my bust being too large on a small frame (I’m trying everything, I don’t really want a surgery there either), and then probablems for thirteen years of trying not to aggravate it (using the restroom for any reason only at certain, rare times, because I’m also afraid of bathrooms for some reason (working on that too, at least I function)).

    I’m upset at myself because I feel like this is my fault, because of all the years of apparently not letting it heal.

    But technically I guess it was the pedophile/kidnapper’s fault?

    Anyway, has anyone had this happen to them? Can I avoid surgery? I really, really don’t want it. Maybe after a pregnancy...? (If I can even get pregnant?)

    Many thanks for stopping by

    Yeah I have pelvic floor issues too because of csa and I’ve no idea about surgery or anything cause I’ve never been able to pluck up the courage to go to the doctor about it. I’m like 5 years overdue a smear test.

    I’m so sorry to hear that

    I forced myself to after pain got bad enough to disrupt my life, but it was difficult as hell. I got some relief though, but I can’t seem to get myself to even let them look at it to see how bad it is or isn’t.

    Thank you @Zoogal

    I have vericose veins that run down both sides of my outer girl parts and have had them for as long as I can remember. I have no idea where I got them and my OB from over twenty years ago Neve heard of them and neither did any of her colleagues. Exercise by far has been the best way to deal with the pain from them. I have found nothing else.

    I'm not a doctor but if you're having physical therapy - I just want to make sure you can look up Kegels. I learned about them when I was pretty young dealing with endometriosis, and I think it has helped me avoid that pelvic floor issue entirely. (I sure hope it will continue to do so!)

    Probably you're learning it in PT but for anyone reading along that has pelvic floor damage (or who wants to prevent it in the future):
