Rectocile problems

Can anyone give me rectocile answers? I had a TVH in March 2004, since then have had extreme pain and pressure in the vaginal area. Does anyone recommend surgery? Does surgery work? It seems to me that having muscles attached to that area wouldn't work, please help.
I'm taking 1600 mgs of ibuprofen daily and I'm still in pain. Thanks

Rectocile problems

It took me so long to get help I was so embarrassed and humiliated. I didn't know what was wrong until I read some posts on this site. **caution sensitive**
It was to the point that I had to use my fingers to have a bowel movement.
I had a repair with my surgery and it wasn't too bad. I hope someone who has had it seperately will answer you about the procedure. I would recommend seeing a uro gyno as they are specialists and can help you the best in determining the right direction to go as far as correcting your rectocele. I hope you can get a referral and their is one in your area. I am seeing one in Boston soon about a cystocele and some posterior problems I am still having. Things are so much better though. I am glad that I had the repair.
Good luck to you and I hope your pain is alleviated soon!

I had rectocele repair with my TVH 3 weeks ago. I've had no problems with it. Its so wonderful not to have the bulge there. If you do get repairs done, do make sure that you take stool softeners and lots of fiber and water, because you don't want to strain with your bm's.

Good luck with it.

I had rectocele, cystocele, enterocele repair with bladder sling in January and so far have had no problems and expecting not to. I would is wonderful not to have a bulge there and back aches at the end of every day. I would recommend going to a good urogynecologist.

i agree a uyro gyn is the way to go.. i had the chief uyro. at the cleveland clinic do my cyctocele and rectocele repair.. it's only been a week and while i did have some constapation issues,and a hematoma (not serious) it's seems like it worked. i looked the other day and wow it looked pretty normal. there was no bulge!! so i'm happy,but it's early we will see! so go with a specialist this is a big one i already had a LAVH in 2003 so this was done after my hyst. and it isnt too pleasant! but everyday is getting better!
good luck

Since my surgery I look like a brand new woman down there! It really is incredible the reconstruction they can do. My urogynecologist did a wonderful job and for that I am grateful.

another newbie

I am having a hysterectomy and rectocele repair on Monday. My surgeon is a urogynecologist. My impression is that he's very competent but has absolutely no sense of humor. Wish me luck!
