I had rectocele and enterocele repair, plus perineum reinforcement, all noted as severe on my discharge notes, in early May. Had an anterior repair last year, though is was always the rectocele that gave me trouble. I never had to splint, but had this awful feeling of downward pressure, pain and fullness in the rectum and in the vagina, especially before a BM or passing gas. The enterocle was only found during the procedure and I was told that this was probably the cause of my symptoms. I am not due to see the consultant (urogynaecologist) yet for a followup. - the registrar, at hospita ldischarge, asked for a long gap to allow the swelling to subside. He said there was a lot of stitches up there.
There is somewhat less of a feeling of downward pressure, except when I have walked for too long, but there is a constant feeling of something (varies from a marble to a golf ball !) in my rectum, which becomes very marked and uncomfortable prior to a BM or passing gas. I wondered about haemerroids but the symptoms don't seem to match. I have been ascribing this, in a hopeful fashion, to the swelling and scar tissue but am wondering if it is more than that.
