10 weeks post a&p repair

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am 10 weeks post op and having a bad time with anal pain been back in hospital 1 doctor said i have hemorrhoids another says proctalgia?. I feel like I have a rectal prolapse i am so down in the dumps so uncomfortable. My colorectal surgeon said he doesn't know what more he can do so he is referring me to another doctor 13 week wait list fir appointment. Had check up with my surgeon she said op is healing fine so why am I in so much pain and discomfort from back end.

    karen are you in the UK? I'm only asking because you mentioned a colorectal surgeon rather than a Urogynaecologist.

      Oh karen feeling weepy is only natural. It's a long time to be in pain and I can't understand why you are having to wait so long for another appointment. Most Urogynaecologists will see their patients very quickly if there's a problem but your GP can ask for your appointment to be brought forward. They have a system where they can expedite your appointment so speak to your GP xx

      Seeing a consultant privately shouldn't affect your NHS referral so don't worry about that. I must admit I can't think of another patient having the same problems but remember I worked on the wards so if they were seen in outpatients I wouldn't however I can't recall any ladies coming back on the ward with similar problems. Please try not to worry about your employer although I know that's not easy but your health is far more important xx

      As matron has said many many times, we need far more information than we are given to make an informed decision. I for one would never have had this op, but there are many I'm sure like matron herself that have had good results , I wish u a speedy recovery. X

      I had my op on 2nd Nov last year , it has been and still is the worst experience of my life, my gp seems to think the prolapse is back, my consultant won't see me as he said all was well at my post op , he has caused nerve damage that has left me in constant pain, and I now have a lump that is by far worse than before the op. My gp said op has failed, and I really have no faith in this consultant so I'm seeking a 2nd :opinion privately. X

      Oh no jan what a horrible time you are still having. I don't think my rectocele has worked and cystocele s so swollen i can't tell. I've gt horrible anal pain and back and pelvic pain I'm going to see pelvc pain consultant privately as waiting list is at least 10 weeks on nhs. Hoe you get sorted this truely is a bad operation to recover from I just wish I could turn the clock back I'm on more pain killers than before I had the op done x
