This sounds like you have vaginal prolapse, correct?
and have you already had a hysterectomy?
And what is your age?
Also - I'm not familiar with St Albans - the ob/gyn's on this site like myself are not from the UK
Yes it is a vaginal prolapse and I have had a hysterectomy. I am 63
okay - well the type of surgeon you want for this since you have already had the surgeon is a pelvic reconstructive surgeon - they are also known as Urogynecologists -
This surgery can be performed via an open procedure - but the Urogynecologist can perform this via a Laparoscopy procedure and /or with the help of the DaVinci robot
so what you need to do, it find an Urogynecologist in your area - and at this point there really is no widely publicized list of Urogynecologists in the world - but your Current doctor SHOULD understand your concerns about the hospital and Should refer you to an urogynecologist - as GOOD doctors do have a referral system to get you to the type of doctor you want and to be operated in the hospital of your choosing.
Now I have a website for you to visit - Read through the site very thoroughly - it will give you a VERY good understanding

I am worried that I am not emptying my bladder properly and cannot leave it too long. Would a sacrospinous fixation be an option ?
If you are Still having 'Prolapse' of the top of the vagina - then a Sacrospinous procedure would help
but that is where an Urogynecologist would help you - not just an ob/gyn - you need a specialized ob/gyn called this Urogyn
I was told there was significant vault prolapse at examination under anaesthesia which was more severe than at previous examination.
Then you need to have this done by an Urogynecolosit
I would STRONGLY suggest looking at DR Miklos and Dr Moore....if you can't seem them - you can at least CALL them - and they can then get you to the CLOSES urogynecologist near your.
I wish you well
