Some help/advice please ladies I am just over three weeks post op for rectocele surgery (vaginal approach) I am only 39 and felt I was doing brilliantly until two days ago when I did something stupid. Because I felt I was recovering well, I decided to have a feel around. Since then I have felt like there is a tennis ball in my vagina and the vaginal entrance feels very sore and tender, with some stitches hanging down. I did see a doctor at the Gynae Assessment Unit. He snipped the stitches but didn't check internally. Could I have ruined the repair? I am really freaking out about this. Also terrified the surgery will have wrecked my sex life and that if I have prolapsed again, it will be worse than before. Feeling that I should have deferred surgery and worried it's all gone wrong. The doctor I saw was quite sniffy about my age and having surgery so young and also said he couldn't tell me if sex would be possible again. I felt quite upset - I didn't exactly want this procedure but I had a rectocele! I do wish my consultant had made me aware of the outcomes and limitations of the surgery. I have done my research post procedure and now it's too late.
