Rectal prolapse

Posted , 8 users are following.

Not sure if this is the correct forum to post in but I think I have a retal prolapse and have had a cystocele and rectocele confirmed.

i have posted previously about  the pressure I have been experiencing for about six months in my rectum/anus area and have recently had a colonoscopy. 

The results was divicular disease and nothing on the rectum even though have been complaining of  soreness inside.  I did think it may have been hemroids but it’s proved that I haven’t any.

Has any got a rectal prolapse, is it uncomfortable sitting and need to lay down a lot for relieve.  I feel like I am on a roundabout and can’t get off.  I have seen a specialist recently who fitted a pessary but have had to get Gp to take it out a couple of weeks later as was so uncomfortable.

I thought the rectal prolapse would show up at a colonoscopy but maybe as I was laying flat it wouldn’t have.,
