Back from Doctor

Just a side note, the more I thought about how I feel with this rectocele thing I thought you know this is really not livable. I have to push it in to have a bowel movement, I have what feels like menstrual cramping, lower back pain, and I can feel this thing and its irritating. So I did some research on the website for urogynocologists and found one that specializes in pelvic prolapse problems. I will have to travel a bit to see her and the first available appointment isn't until April 19, but I figured its better to have the appointment and see if I still think I need it when the time comes. One of my replies mentioned that maybe there was a reason I got in to the old doctor so quickly and if that logic is reversed its a good sign that the urogynocologist is so booked up. So we will see. They say patience is a virtue. I have a very hard time with the waiting.

I'm back from the hosptal - all went well, my uro/gyn did the 4 repairs (including rectocele) According to my uro/gyn, after you are put to sleep your muscles completely relax and that is when the doctor can see how extensive the prolapses are. He said mine fell right to the vaginal openning. He also told me that if it is bothering the patient it needs to be fixed. He said some patients have some pretty bad prolapses, & when he asks them if they bother her, she says no....and the opposite. So, he goes by how his patient feels. (I had lower back pain & cramping, turned out I also had an enterocele!) Now, that's not to say there aren't other treatments to try before having surgery...and we did try, but they didn't work. I'm glad you're going to see a uro/gyn for a 2nd the meantime, try adding a fiber supplement (I use Citrucel) to your diet to help with the constipation....take care!

Huntingandmoon, I am glad your surgery went well. Thanks so much for the website that is how I found this doctor. My gyn looked at it and said it was a rectocele and that I would need surgery. So when old doctor he sent me to said no surgery was needed I was kinda bewildered but I really wasn't looking forward to another surgery so I thought ok I can live with this. As the day progressed I though you know I really am uncomfortable with it and this was the doctor that told me(about the endometriosis) "some ladies just have to buck up and deal with the pain" and it turned out I had endometriosis that ended up all the way in my bellybutton. There was no reason for me to live with that . I was just anxious to get this over with so when I got in to see him so quickly I went. Now I am prepared to wait so that I can see this doctor. This new doc only does pelvic prolapse and pelvic pain problems. Thanks again and I hope you are taking it easy and feel better.
