I will try and keep this as short as possible. I am 24 years old, last year i had a sigmoidoscopy as I had rectal bleeding. I was diagnosed with solitary rectal ulcer syndrome. They wanted to find out more so my consultant sent me for an MRI Proctagram. The results showed that my bowel was collapsing down around 6-7 cm. my consultant referred me to another consultant in another hospital to get a second opinion. He agreed with my consultant that the best way to approach my problem was surgery and to perform a ventral mesh rectopexy. I saw my consultant a couple of weeks ago and he booked me in for my op on the 13th September this year. A week later I received a letter from the other consultant saying he had discussed my case at a pelvic floor group meeting and would like further testing done to determine the extent of what's going on and to do a better test that shows up clearer. He says he thinks that the advice to repair it with key hole surgery may not be wholly appropriate. So Monday just gone (the 14th) I went in for a fluoroscopic proctagram where they discovered I have a rectocele. I now have to wait to find out what happens next. Anyone going through it been through anything similar? I hate not knowing what's going to happen next. What surgery did you have? How do you cope on a day to day basis? I just feel so low thankyou xx
