Rectal Discomfort 11 months post op?

I had my TVH,BSO with "extensive" vaginal repair (according to my bill) the rectum had prolapsed as well and was fixed. NOW almost 11 months later I still feel like I'm sitting on a softball. The last time I saw my GYN(FEB) he told me it was probably vascular pain...could it still be vascular pain this far down the road? It isn't killing me or anything, but I would like to be able to sit in a car and go on a trip longer than 45 minutes without needing a pain pill. Anyone else been here?

I think it's time to see your doctor again - or get another opinion. Any pain that continues needs to be looked into further. Keep us posted on how you are doing.

Talk to your doctor about either pudendal nerve entrapment or obturatur internus muscle pain. Over on the website I spend most of my time on, I hear of your symptom over and over. The pudendal nerve can be released by surgery, and sometimes the obturator internus can get pain relief from Botox injections. The problem is that not many doctors know how to treat these conditions. Email me if you want more info since they don't like to see websites posted here.

I'm seconding (((LynnMary))'s advice. Please see your doctor or seek a 2nd opinion.

Sounds like (((Celeste))) has some good talking points for the discussion with your doctor.

Not being able to sit for more than 45 minutes without needing a pain pill is definitely something to be looked into. Ouch! That's definitely a quality of life issue.

Please do not downplay this issue to your doctor. I am one of those patients who wants to appear strong and capable of handling anything. And so, maybe this comment is more about me than you, but your comment that it wasn't killing you sounded a bit familiar.

while you wait. And, do keep us posted.

(((Annette)))) I'm so sorry you're still having these pains, so long after your surgery

I agree with the others: pain like this, this long after your surgery, needs to be addressed. It is not a normal part of recovery.

I had a Stage III Rectocele repaired at the same time as my TVH. I did have some swelling for quite some time after the surgery and the healing was a little longer than for just the TVH. However, by the time I was three or four months post-op, the swelling was all gone.

Sending tons of s your way. Please be sure to keep us posted.
