Hello. I am new to patient forums. Just reviewing several groups i have found this site to be very positive and helpful. I was diagnosed with pelvic wall prolapse, rectocele, cystocele, with thin perineal wall. History of constipation. Two children, two heard labor/deliveries. The surgeon wants to go in through my abdomen which I am uncomfortable with. Also, he wants to remove a large amount of colon and reattach in order to "pull things up" hence fixing the rectocele. No mesh used. Has anyone had a surgery like this?
Also, He mentioned having a partial hysterectomy at the same time but has not mentioned fixing the cyctocele... any suggestions on whether or not I should suggest it all be done at once?
I would much rather the surgery be done through the vaginally wall but he has just mentioned through the abdomen or rectum. I am so nervous I an tempted to delay what I know is inevitable. I know I need the surgery but I want to make sure I know all of my options and the best one for me. Amy help is greatly appreciated! ! Thank you!
