Been given loads of info about a laproscopic rectopexy with mesh which is the surgery I need to repair my vaginal bowel prolapse. I need some repair to my bladder also as the bowel has cause some damage. I don't get freaked out easy but I can't get past the fact that the mesh is attached to your back bone. I have been told about potential back pain as a side effect and now knowing where the mesh is attached I'm not surprised! I'm only in my 20s and my specialists are telling me this op only lasts 10 years and each time surgery gets more difficult due to scar tissue created. How are you supposed to make a decision like this when both sides have negatives! My pelvic floor isn't working at all so physio will not help however I am starting on a pericalm machine today with my specialist in the hope it may improve my bladder function. I don't really have anyone to discuss this with so if anyone has any advice at all that would be great. Thank you, Rachael
