Hi girls! I hope you understand my English, Im writing from Spain. Firstly, thanks for this wonderful and useful forum.
I am 46. I had an hysterectomy and cistocele surgery (mesh) 4 months ago because I had uterus and bladder prolapse. Everything has gone well more or less, Ive had minor issues but everything is fine now I think. I still feel a bit weird... And have some stings inside...
Since the surgery, I have been taking Carbonatum of Magnesium (its a stool softener) because I used to be constipated since I was a teenager.
But for 3 weeks things have been difficult in the bathroom, I feel like after pooing I still have something inside. As I am having massage sessions with my physio weekly (she treats the scars and tissues with massage and radiofrequency) I asked her to check my rectum and she confirmed I have a rectocele. It's not that big but for me is very uncompfortable. I feel it on the perineum, not inside the vagina and feel it full all the time.
I have an app with a dr next week and in two weeks I will see my gyn who did the surgery.
I have a lot of questions... Why he didn't repair the rectocele too? Can a rectocele appears only in 4 months? Will I need another surgery? I can't see a buldge through the vagina so I guess Its not that big, but Im not used to have that feeling in the anus all the time. If the rectum has to be like a tube, I feel it like a ball.
My physiotherapist sais we will begin next week with exercises in order to tone my PV (its too weak now). Could it get better with exercise? I had 1 month of repose and 3 months of sick leave, so my life has been very quiet for 3 months cos I didn't want the surgery to fail.
Any piece of advice? Anyone has had a similar experience? Thanks in advance!!!
