A few weeks ago I asked if it was best to use a gynaecologist or colorectal surgeon to repair a rectocele. Everyone seemed to think a gynaecologist was best & I agree.
My next question is - how long did you wait before making the decision to have it done? I don't know when mine first appeared but I was told I had a small rectocele 3 years ago. Having the bulge there isn't great but I could live with that if necessary, it's causing me problems going to the toilet now. I rarely feel empty (sorry!) & I am getting quite obsessed with it now.
I don't go out as much as I would like & cannot sleep sometimes as it gives me low back ache & I find it difficult to relax.
It's not a small operation & I know recovery can take quite a few months but I am so worried that my bowel problems might continue after the op. I'm so anxious about it all that it's taken over my life! I'm sorry if this sounds a bit dramatic but I'm not dealing with it very well at the moment.
You are all so helpful to one another it's good to know you are out there. Thank you for listening.
