    Hi Anna. I had rectocele surgery 4 weeks ago and in the first few weeks was also a little bit wiffy and noticed when on the loo. Very common I hear but keep a check of other symptoms as can also be a sign of infection. Hope all goes well for you. Xx

    Anna, I had a vaginal infection after heavy bleeding during the surgery, the bleeding continued for 24 hrs.  The smell was noticeable and I required antibiotics.  So I would notify the surgeon.

    I will be having another repair, six months after the first that I just described.  My surgery failed because of the bleeding...so my surgeon said. 

    Don't hesitate. Call for clarification.
