Well I've just been to see the consultant regarding the re-prolapse - rectocele. Though it is not so much a re-prolapse as in failure but a new prolapse.I had a proctogram which shows a paradoxical muscle problem at bowel motion - so everything goes back up the other way. This has cause dth ere-prolapse. Consultant is unwilling to do re-surgery as - if the paradox is still there - I will just re-prolapse.
?She asked about the pelvic phsyio, I've had two sessions and due another in Jan. I can't say I've warmed to this physio as her implication is everything is my fault - I'm too fat, lift too much etc. Her best suggestions is to carry less equipment for work. I have cut out the caffeine, drinking more water. But I thought I was seeing the physio for the bladder weakness - not this paradoxical muscle malarky. This has only just been diagnosed and I saw the physio before that. The exercises she has given me - which I do - are for pelvic floor - bladder - not sphincter. I've just looked up these exercises and they are quite different.
?I told the consultant that I didn't feel splinting is a long term solution - I'm 53 I could have another 40+ years of this. The physio does think it is a practical longterm solution. (possibly another reason I don't like her!!)
?When I saw the physio last - a few weeks ago - I hadn't had the results of the proctogram but she had obviously seen them - she asked me if I had and I said no. Later in the conversation she said "well you have a substantial prolapse" but I wasn't quick enough to pick up on it with her.
?So I have now been referred to the colo-rectal team. The uro-gynae consultant said if they give the go ahead to do more surgery then she will.
?Should I have a go at these exercises I have found online (university hospital birmingham leaflet - very good info) to get ahead as it were before I see physio again in Jan.
?Feeling a bit down about this. I'm not in pain as such. I do have that constant low level ache, by the end of the day I can barely stand up straight. I would like something sorted..............................
