Gutted !!! Had vaginal rectocele a year ago .... and found out today I have another rectocele, so the operation was obviously a failure, I new something was wrong as feeling pressure feelings and bladder and bowel problems all back again ... so waiting to see a gyno and will obviously need more surgery .. my doctor could see the bowel collapse on examination .... just can’t believe after all I went through with my surgery last year !!!!

    Hi, Denylady, mine failed after around six weeks, but not going for another repair.

    Knowing more about the repair act now, I can manage things a lot bettter. Plus the first one is always the best, stengthwise, so not going through it to have another failure.

    Mine was two and a half years ago.

      The trouble is Laura it’s so uncomfortable and it’s affecting my bladder and feels continuously heavy down there ... I really don’t want to go through this again but can’t stand the pressure feeling x

    Oh I am so sorry to hear this!  I just had mine repaired last month.  I sure hope it lasts longer than a year!  I had a cystocele as well so I had both taken care of.  Did the doc give you an idea of why it failed?

      Hi love

      There is no way of telling t he reason why it failed.

      It can be a number of this like ti ssdu e strength,surgeons technique,too much lifting,high impact exercise or just one of those things.

      My anterior failed 3 weeks after in 2016 and had It redone with tvh this January with a new surgeon.

      It really i s awful what we have to go through but at least it's not a serious illness. I keep telling myself that.

      I may need my back wall done but it's only a grade 1 so not bad really. Doing pelvic floor everyday is a must Love x
