Rectocele and cystocele repair surgery

Edited , 3 users are following.

I had rectocele and cystocele repair surgery a week ago. i began having severe sharp shooting pain on the back end where the rectocele was 5 days after surgery. my surgeon told me that there was a lot of reconstruction done because apparently my rectocele was pretty bad. I hear buttock pain is normal, how normal? I don't have a fever so I am hopeful it is not an infection. Can someone tell me if this is expected?

    hi, i had the same operation a few years ago. i had exactly same pain as you are mentioning. sorry to say i had that severe pain for a few months. you are still very early in recovery, you really need to relax and take things very slowly.x
