Recovery time from rectocele??

Hi Ladies!
I know that several of you have had rectocele repair. I am thinking that I may have a problem. I am 10 weeks post op from TAH/RSO and am noticing that if I have to strain at all to have a BM, I get this bulging feeling in my vagina and it stays there until I can get the bowels going again. As long as I am on stool softeners or keep a lot of fiber in my diet, I don't have this problem.

I was just wondering what the recovery time is for a rectocele repair. I don't know if it's even worth mentioning to my DR as long as I can get it to go away with fiber. Plus, my boss would probably have a hemmorhage if I had to miss more time.

Was just curious as to what all is invovled in the repair.

((((Christi))))) I'm so sorry you're having these problems

While the symptoms you're describing could be caused by a rectocele, they could also be caused by a number of other things. For that reason, I strongly recommend that you contact your doctor and mention the difficulties you're having. It could be something very benign that can be relieved without resorting to additional surgery. And, sometimes, catching something like a rectocele early can mean avoiding surgery!!!

Sending lots of your way. Please let us know what your doctor says.
