Evening all, 

im 7 weeks my repair surgery for prolapsed bladder and womb ,I still have a rectocele and rectal prolapse, the surgeon didn't want to operate on everything in one go 😩 .

my question is as the swelling inside has subsided I'm more aware of my rectocele and in anything it feels as if it's protruding further into my vAgina and I'm having quite substantial rectal pain /pressure, have anyone else experienced this kind of thing following surgery ??? 

Im not returning until mid Jan to see the surgeon when we're hopefully going to review and discuss the next round of surgery 😬 

Th ants in advance x

    Hi I had surgery 3 weeks ago was supposed to have cystocele rectocele and vaginal vault repair , my surgeon told me when I came round he had left my cystocele for another surgery too also in January.

    I have read that most people have pain in their rectum lower back etc

      Hi Natalia, its very normal that gyns operate the two things separately. In my case, I had cistocele and hysterectomy operated last December (last year) and I noticed the rectocele got bigger in February. My dr told my he could operate the rectocele in June (i postponed it for personal reasons). So he gave me 6 months aprox for the first op to heal. Hope it helps!

    Yes me too. I think when the bladder is prolapsed it holds the bowel up so when it is put back into position the bowel can drop down further. My surgeon would not do both ops at the same time as it can leave you too tight. I now need further surgery at some point.

    Thank you for your replies, my goodness I've not realised how bad the rectocele was until the rest of my bits were put back in the correct place, like you imnodoctor I feel as if the bowel prolapse has definitely got bigger, it feels so uncomfortable when I sit or walk 😬
