I would like to thank everyone for their frank discussion of this very personal issue. Too often keep women keep the topic of their elimation difficulties and reproductive system under cover. As the grandmother of 3 beautiful granddaughters, I joke that if young women knew how their bodies may be altered from strenuous childbirth, there would be no grandchildren. I've dealt with an every growing rectocele since my second delivery 32 yrs ago. I now have 4, the youngest is 15. I've "chickened out" of surgery twice, first 3 yrs ago when my MD stated I would be in immense pain, and second 1.5 yrs ago due to "scheduling" but really fear. He advised anterior and posterior repair with Hysterectomy (I will assume total rather than partial due to multiple dysplasia treatments). At 54, and dealing with perimenopause, it's time to get this done. I've read a lot of literature, but truly appreciate the open discussions regarding post op recovery experiences, progress and difficulties. If there are any questions I should ask, I'd appreciate responses.
