How can you tell if you have a rectocele? What are the symptoms? I had a abdominal hysterectomy (kept ovaries) and Burch procedure on July 15, 2003.

i had a tvh/ in feb for prolapse.... i now have a rectocele... for me the feeling is worse than my other prolapses.... i went to the doctors as i could feel things were not right... it bulges like my other prolapses but more intense somehow... i am now waiting on our uk waiting list... for another op.... i did everything right but i suppose i am unlucky... at least it can be sorted but i am pretty depressed about it... i suggest you see your doc and see what he has to say... perhaps you are worrying needlessley.... i wish you well... mary. xx

I had a Stage III Rectocele repaired at the same time as my hyst. In my case, the main symptom of the rectocele was a bulge at the entrance of my vagina. Other symptoms included constipation/diarrhea cycle, having to "splint" to evacuate, back pains and, strangely enough, hip pain. I also had problems with walking straight.

For more information on the various prolapses, here's a link to the Resources Database, specifically to the resources dealing with prolapse:

Hi Ihaddon,
My symptoms were as follow,

Buldge in vag. while having BM. Severe pain in tailbone area. The bulgde finally was hanging out my Vag. and it felt like I had a carpet burn from the air hitting my exposed vaginal tissue. I waited to long to have it repaired and strained to much haveing BM's that I also had a entrecole. That's a prolapse of the intestine, That made my back pain worse and it felt like I had a tampon falling out of me. Please make sure you do whatever you need to do to keep from being contsipaited. Let us know what the dr. say's. (((Hugs to you)))
