A Cystocele and Receiving Social Security Disability Benefits
The main task of your bladder is to store and release urine. Nerves that are located in your bladder tell you when it is time to empty your bladder (urinate).
A cystocele is a medical condition that develops when the fibrous wall between your vagina and your bladder becomes weakened and permits your bladder to droop into your vagina.
A cystocele may cause two kinds of problems. They are incomplete emptying of your bladder and unwanted urine leakage. A cystocele stretches the opening into your urethra. This can result in urine leakage whenever you laugh, cough, sneeze or move in any way that puts pressure on your bladder.
The severity of a cystocele is determined by three grades. Grade 1 is considered to be a mild cystocele. This is where your bladder droops only a little way into your vagina. Grade 2 is more severe. In this case, your bladder droops far enough to reach the opening of your vagina. Grade 3 is the most severe form of a cystocele. This is when your bladder bulges out through the opening of your vagina.
A cystocele is referred to in other ways. It is also known as a fallen bladder, prolapsed bladder, anterior prolapse or bladder prolapse.
When your cystocele is mild (grade 1), you may not notice any signs or symptoms. However, with more severe cystoceles, possible signs and symptoms are:

A cystocele would not usually be a condition that would qualify you to receive Social Security disability benefits or disability benefits. However, you or a loved one may have complications resulting from a cystocele, or you may have other disabling disorders along with this condition that have caused you to be disabled and unable to work.
If this is your situation, you may need help. You may need financial assistance.
You or your loved one may intend to apply for the financial help that you need from the Social Security Administration by applying for Social Security disability benefits or disability benefits because of the disability caused by a cystocele and the complications resulting from it or the other disorders that you have along with this condition. You or your loved one may have already applied and been denied by the Social Security Administration.
If you or your loved one plans on reapplying or appealing the denial, remember this important fact. The simple truth is that people who have a disability lawyer standing with them like the one you will find at disabilitycasereview.com are approved more often than people who are not represented by a disability attorney.
