Question - Can a rectocele be repaired through an abdominal incision? Can a rectocele be repaired through an abdominal incision?

Hello everyone and I hope someone out there can answer some questions for me. I had my hysterectomy in 1990 when I was 25. Now I'm 46, and have a vaginal prolaspe, rectocele, cystocele, and ovaries that are enlarged due to cysts. I have gone to my surgeon and he said I would have to have and open abdominal sacrocolpopexy and an oophorectomy. Will the sacrocolpopexy fix the rectocele and the cystocele? Can a rectocele be repaired through an abdominal incision? My question is can all that be fixed though my belly??? I cannot find anything on the Internet. All the information is about robot assisted and laparoscopic.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

I think that it can be all done thru the belly, though my repairs were done vaginally. Try looking up anterior and posterior colporrhaphy. Hopefully that will lead you to the info you are looking for. Be prepared for some, uh let's say interesting pictures:/
