Hi ladies, i thought I'd write an update as I'm now 5 months post Op and have finally had my post Op check up! My colorectal surgeon seems happy with results so far. The external rectocele is holding up well and is no longer visible ,but i still have a small internal prolapse which is not causing a problem at present (if it does i can have surgery to fix it at a later date). I have been referred back to a Urogynae as it seems i still have a visible cystocele...i had hoped this would have been better after surgery but unfortunately not, so i still have some minor urinary leak issues. I do have some nippy/sore areas inside but am hoping when i see pelvic physio next month i will get some advice. It seems i have developed a rectal fissure (tear) which is why BMs are still painful so i have got some prescription cream to use (which helps some) and i continue to use laxido daily to help motility.
My surgeon said i should be back to "normal" living now without fear of recurring / damaging prolapses/repairs.....i have to disagree having had so many previous failed repairs, so i will continue to avoid heavy lifting/straining etc for good. I still feel that surgery recovery times are very much underestimated by some professionals. Take good care ladies xx
