Post op rectal/sacral pain after sacral colpopexy


My robotically assisted hysterectomy was 8/18/10. I also had a sacral colpopexy and urethral sling. I am 3 weeks out and having moderate to severe rectal pain. I am looking for someone who has had this complication- I am hoping it will go away! Uro gyn wants to do a nerve block.
Thanks

Re: Post op rectal/sacral pain after sacral colpopexy

I have had a vaginal hyst a cystocele with sling for urethra and a rectocele repair. I am actually haing more rectal pain then the other sites now. I am about 3 weeks post op. No bowel movement for 10 days. I took all kinds of stool softener and laxatives. But my rectal pain its like a knife at times. I will see my doctor next week and see whats going on. Good luck to you

Re: Post op rectal/sacral pain after sacral colpopexy

Thanks for replying! Hopefully, your rectal pain is from your lack of bowel movement. I am having normal bowel movements and the pain is worse when sitting. I have read other posts from women with rectal pain after these repairs. However, I didn't feel very reassured by my urogyn appt. He has offered to give me a nerve block- hmmm

Anyway, good luck with your appt. and hopefully you'll get your bowels to cooperate?
