I've had a successful posterior repair . I suffer all sorts of strange feelings with anterior wall plus bulginess on and off . It's controlling my life I hate it plus I feel front wall pushing down when I cough it's awful . Who's had this completely resolved with anterior repair ? TIA X

      It's now over 2 years since my prolapse operation and every day I have concerns - my GP was happy when I saw her a few months ago but I definitely can feel a bulge and have to be very careful when lifting, exercising and doing general household chores. I'm now thinking its just something I shall have to live with!

    August will be a year for me and rectecele and cystecele stage 4 repair. Had to go back in for the bladder sling to be loosen about 8 weeks ago. So I had to do recovery twice. But right now, I feel great. The bulge feeling finally went away, I'm ridding a bike, and doing house work. Engergy level is up. Sometimes i do get a poping feeling down there, like a bubble. Don't get that feeling to often now.

    I still know when I need to put my feet up, but it takes much longer for it to feel that way. So right at this moment I feel pretty good. But not exactly the same as before anything happen.

      Haven't really been doing exercise yet, except for walking and biking. Hope to start easying into some. I need a lot of toneing!

      I do try to remember to do kegal exercise. Need to be better at it, and do more. Thanks for reminder, needed that!

    I had a posterior (rectocele) repair over a year ago and lead a fairly normal life again. I also now feel a bulge on the front wall and have some bladder urgency off and on. One thing that is important is to not get constipated where there is pressure on the back wall where the repair was done. Also continue to do kegels to build up and strengthen vaginal wall muscles. I went to physical therapy briefly to learn to do them properly. I would suggest that. There are also some YouTube videos you can watch to give some step by step instructions. Hope you are able to get your life back!

      I'm sane as you had a posterior repair and so far it's holding well.

      I have a cystocele left but I'm so worried about repairing it because I read a lot of negative story's x

    Hello

    I had a rectocele and a bowel tuck 14 months ago. I do a very physical job and I am really lucky my operation was a total success. I have no problems and am physically fit and back to my normal life. I am back to swimming around 2 miles twice a week (42 minutes for 1 mile) and no issues. I walk and swim the only thing i would love to do again is powerhoop but that is off the cards forever now. as too is heavy lifting, frustrating but neccesary.

    Good luck with your recovery, do not over do it, listen to your body and rest when you need to, even if that is for months and months you will get better it takes time and care. you only have one you; look after it and you will be fine.

    I took everyones advice on here and now i am reaping the rewards, Hope you will be too.

      There's horror stories with all pelvic floor operations! I would say more so with rectocoele! So much depends on the state inside there at time of surgery & no two would hardly ever be the same. Take that into account & the Surgeons experience & skill (sorry to say) & your repair will never be exactly as the next person. There's many success stories as well. Some (small amount) fail despite the woman doing everything right Post-op.
