I am reasonably new to this forum, haven't shared much but have had comfort in reading your comments & apologise upfront as this is going to be long winded.
I had an anterior repair nearly 7 weeks ago & about 3 weeks ago started feeling much better when what seems overnight I started having trouble emptying my bowels & feeling "different" down there. Like the prolapse had come back. I contacted my surgeon & booked in to see him.
He advise me that the surgery to fix the anterior prolapse had gone well however he could see a rectocele buldge. He said it wasn't at the entrance to the vagina. I was then advise to continue to not lift anything more than 5kg for a few weeks & then nothing more than 15kg. I do recall he mentioning u had a rectocele at my initial consultation however he advised that did not need to be operated on. So frustrated that this could have been dealt with.
My symptoms have become worse in the past week. I feel like I am sitting in an egg. My AP always felt kind of soft where as this is quite hard.
My family & I went out for dinner for the first time since my surgery & within in hour I was ready to go home. I could feel "the egg" moving down. When I fit home I immediately headed to the bathroom. The urge was there but I had trouble voiding. I felt around & to my shock I could feel quite a firm buldge nearly at the entrance of my vagina.
I am totally devastated. I cried to my husband & my poor son over heard. He is 14 & ended up in tears.
Due to go back to work tomorrow & totally petrified.
Could the rectocele progressed this quickly?
Is there anything I could do to make it better?
The thought of another operation is making me sick.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated & once again apologies for the vent.
