    Hi Jill, lying here with an ice pack on my rear end, so yes can totally empathise with you.

    On Gabapentin, not doing much, the burning is horrendous, rectocele repair a year last april. Didn't work, it's back again.

    You've probably already had this investigated but... have you seen a pelvic floor Physio? My whole system spasmed after prolapse surgery, causing all sorts of different pain. After a few weeks of treatment I feel like I might be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
