I was diagnosed with a cystocele a few weeks ago after being in discomfort for a couple of weeks with pressure especially on the rectum. At first I thought it was hemorrhoids as have pressure and fullness in my rectum.
I was examined and given treatment for them, but it didn't help.
I saw another GP and she gave me a good examination and said I
had a cysocele.
Today I had a pessary put in, I was told it may not work as I have had a hysterectomy. Needless I knew straight away that the pressure on my rectum had not gone away. I returned to the Dr surgery an hour later and had a different pessary put in. It's no better, I can hardly sit as feels like there is something pressing on my rectum.
I have an appointment the day after tomorrow with the nurse who fitted it to try another pessary, but I feel nothing will work.
I am so worried that something is wrong. Has anyone else experienced this before.
I should mention that I am over 65.
