I have been chronically ill since I was diagnosed with full rectal prolapse or a year before that actually, as the tests I had did not show up the full extent. I need to open my bowels 16 to 22 times a day, I am full of stinging unpleasant mucus, which is just as irritating as poo and has to be dealt with, I have a constant pain like stubbing my toe although in this case my rectum is involved, and in my honest opinion, I have a gaping wide open wound where my anus used to reside, and I bleed and there are 'awkward bits', I am so sorry if this is unpleasant but I have been laid up in agony, having to take codeine daily as they are the only thing that touch the pain, and am in a permanent state of exhaustion and don't know how for the life of me I stay on my feet at all. I had a ventral mesh retropescy which is major, in my case keyhole surgery but it simply didn't help hardly at all. I also strain the living daylights out of myself on the loo every fifteen minutes round the clock for four years now and don't know why I don't give up altogether. Such is the pain and the ordeal I go through.
On the plus side I have my poetry and photography and art hobbies which I self manage as best I can and use of a mobile and a laptop at which I'm fairly proficient, good friends and family but what do i do? I suspect an ulcer or even cancer, such is the extremities of what I have been going through especially lately and the medics are quite frankly drawing a blank, I want an ultrasound but keep being told one is not appropriate for bowel conditions, does anyone know if this is right as I have had colonoscopy, sigmoid and FOUR proctograms and cant take the pain and unpleasantness of them and would have thought an ultrasound would be my right by now, after four years of largely inconclusive tests on the more conventional side, please help someone.
