My best friend decided when she was stepping on her cervix and uterus whilst doing the dishes that it was time to have a hysterectomy. *weak smile* Actually, they can "tack" it back in place but your age is taken into consideration and further surgery might be recommended. It is never particularly heatlh for an organ used to sitting quietly in a dark, warm, moist environment to spend any time on the outside in a hostile, dry, cool environment w/o its developing some undesirable 'side effects' from such exposure.
Glad you are going to discuss this w/your doctor, preferably and gyn or ob/gyn.
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
