rectocele and csytocele surgery

Hi Jacky, I am not sure about (rectocele/cystocele) surgery, but I wanted to respond it hopes that it would get the other sisters attention and maybe someone else would have some info. I just recently had the TVT surgery and I was home by mid afternoon. I would call your Dr and check with him or her. Best of luck to you and I hope this little bit of information helps. I'm sure someone else will repond thats had this kind of surgery. Also ask the nurse at your pre-op appointment for reading material about your particular surgery because it takes you step by step through the entire procedure. Take good care! Melanie

rectocele and csytocele surgery

Hi, I am scheduled for surgery in 2 weeks for a rectocele, cystocele, and prolasped uterus. My Dr. said that I will be in the hosp. at least 24 hours after surgery because you will have to be able to pee on your own before you can leave. Depending on the type of procedure, (I am getting a bladder sling) it might be to tight and you can't pee right and it would have to be fixed before you can go home. Also, the vagina will be "packed" with gauze ect.. to help everything keep its shape until you leave the hospital and the healing time for all of these procedures is longer that just a hysterectomy alone. I am just going on what my Dr. has told me. Good luck! I hope this helps.

rectocele and csytocele surgery

I had a rectocele and enterocele repaired Jan 25th. I was in the hospital about 24 hours after I had my surgery. I was allowed to stay a second night if I wanted to, but I went home. They do pack your vagina with gauze after the surgery and it is not taken out until the next morning along with the catheter.
Be sure to call your Dr. and get all of the info on the surgery. Mine told me everything I wanted to know.
Good luck!

rectocele and csytocele surgery

I had no packing after having a cystocele and rectocele repaired (along with TVH). The only criteria I had to meet was passing gas, taking oral pain meds, keeping food down, and normal vital signs; I stayed 24 hours.
The only way to know for sure what youre up against is to ask YOUR Dr; we can only speculate on what you'll be facing.

Stay well

rectocele and cystocele

Hi there. I had a vaginal hysterectomy with rectocele repair. I stayed in the hospital overnight. Gas pains! I was 42 years old. My recovery was fairly easy, but I kept going back to the doctor because of a very heavy pulling pain. He told me that it was most likely a tightness that is felt from the stitching and would go away. It eventually did go away. I didn't believe him, but he was right. I got used to the new feeling and feel better. I wish you well and hope that you experience an easy recovery!
