Post-Op Rectum Pressure

I am 4 weeks out tomorrow from a total abdominal hysterectomy after a diagnosis of uterine cancer, stage 1. I have bruised pain in lower abdomen, belly swelling, pulling and tugging feelings like I have read on your message boards. But, I have a feeling of a weight sitting on my rectum and strong pressure. Has anyone had that feeling? My bowels have returned to normal.

i had that feeling for several weeks after surgery but i had a posterior repair. i'm not sure why you would be feeling the rectal pain/pressure--you might want to run this past your dr and make sure nothing has prolapsed.
stay well
