After nine months of pelvic floor physio and seeing different consultants to rule out other problems sadly I am no better with all of my symptoms from the rectocele and cystocele and will be going forward with the surgery in next few weeks. The surgery will be vaginal without any form of mesh as the uro-gynae advises against that given many have encountered problems with the mesh although I have heard some good stories too. I have been told surgery will be fairly robust and that I will need to rest for approx 6 weeks afterward.
I wanted to avoid surgery at all cost but simply cannot continue as I am as this is quite literally taking over my life with bladder/bowel issues, bloated tummy, pelvic pain ( left side) m nausea etc.... list is endless am just feeling awful in every sense. I think every woman deserves an award for going through all this as it is something you cannot explain to someone who has never suffered...
If anyone has recently undergone surgery for prolpase I would be most grateful if they had anything to share or any words of encouragement as I am quite literally petrified about the surgery beyond means. thank you much xx
