What is rectocele ?

Sorry I keep seeing this word and have no idea what it is.
I should probably know these things since I am having such a big procedure.

What is rectocele ?

I found this on the net....

prolapse of the genital organs, herniation or bulging of the posterior vaginal wall with the anterior wall of the rectum in direct apposition to the vaginal epithelium, pelvic organ prolapse, defect of the rectovaginal septum

In plain English it means the back wall of the vagina, near the rectum, (which would be the front wall of the rectum near the vagina) "collapses" and bulges. this can cause problems with bowel movements and probably with sex also.

I'd never heard of it before I came to this site --- that and a whole lot of other medical terms!! Live and learn.

good luck with your surgery
