Rectocele

Just to recap,I had a prolapsed bladder repair the beginning of April. Since then I had a tough recovery with pain and infections.b I've continued to have intense lower back pain/pelvic pain.  I made an appt and went to my gynecologist two weeks ago.  My dr was on vacation ( of course), so I saw one of her colleagues.  When he did the exam it hurt incredibly bad.  He's response was, I don't know why it is hurting? You have a rectocele, but I've seen worse. He put me on an oral antibiotic to get rid of the bacterial infection.  After in that for a couple of days I grew even sicker ( body aches, chills ect). So, they took me off that and put me on a antibiotic that you insert vaginally.  I just finished that last night but even inserting that causes severe pain. I have a call into my dr. I'm hoping she is back.  Am I being a wimp? I had all 5 of my kids naturally and handle it fine.  This is 24/7 pain.  Sorry so long any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi patti sorry to hear you are having such a bad time and after 5 kids no you are not a wimp ! How was the surgery was it vaginal or keyhole ? I am wondering if you have a pelvic mass (infection in the pelvic cavity) I had bowel surgery and had awful pain weeks after and was told it was wind ! Eventually they found infection in my pelvic cavity and I had a drain in and very strong antibiotics. Be firm with your doc you have had 5 kids and you know your body especially your lady bits !

      Hi patti hope Dr appointment goes well. Try to be confident and insist you know something is not right. Try to write down your symptoms, feelings and worries. It's so easy to forget important info or questions when you are there. Good luck and post how you get on x

    I certainly hope you are feeling better by now.  

    I am considering a bladder repair to be done vaginally and using cadaver graft tissue for further support.  I'm scared of the surgery and wondering if you feel it was worth it?  I hate having the prolapse and I do wear a pessary for support now but hate it also.  Thanks and get well soon.
