I am 52 and have had two children (both grown-up) by normal deliveries. have been diagnosed with a rectocele and the doctor has referred me to the hospital, but I haven't even heard back with a date for an initial appointment and I'm already scared stiff!
My main fear is not the surgery itself but the fact that I might have difficulty with sex afterwards, particularly in view of my age (I am mid-menopause, having not had a period now for 6 months). I have read so many horror stories online about people still experiencing pain several months after the operation. It took 3 months before I was comfortable with sex after giving birth to my babies, and on neither occasion did I have an episiotomy!
Sorry this post must sound as though I am sex-obsessed, but it is really worrying me a lot.
