Hi, I'm in the US and have a large rectocele (3.4) and I also have rectal muscosal prolapse. The mucosal prolapse was found by a colorectal surgeon and the rectocele by a urogynecologist. The colorectal surgeon would be happy to repair both but the urogynecologist says the transvaginal approach used by uro/gyns for repairing rectoceles is much more successful than the transanal approach used by colorectal surgeons. My colorectal surgeon doesn't agree with her. I don't know who to have do what. The uro/gyn doesn't even want to address the rectal mucosal prolapse saying that it is insignificant but the colorectal says part of my discomfort is coming from the rectal mucosal prolapse and both should be repaired. Does anyone have any ideas on this or any experience with this? Thanks.
