bladder spasms/bowel problems

I wish that I had checked things out first before I ever had the first procedure ( endometrial ablation) Oct.2004 ( 11 mo. ago)doctor #1 for my hemmoraging periods. Has anyone had their uterus to prolapse, along with cystecele/rectecele following a hysteroscopy d & c endometrial ablation? I had the hysterectomy in Feb.2005 LAVH/BSO ( 7 mo. ago)doctor #2. I do not believe that anything was done for cystecele/rectecele during my hysterectomy. I guess that I had that, at least I was told by urologist doctor . He said that I needed a Gynecologist for the repairs that he mentioned after he examined me. He wrote something like DSTX uterine bleeding? AP repair? on a prescription pad. Though I was in pain re-cooping from hysterectomy surgery I didn't notice my vaginal walls area pushing together inside and rubbing and feeling like it is rolling out right after the surgery. It seems like it just started progressing. I'm not sure. Is that the way it happens? I was off and on HRT during that time cause I was having problems getting use to the hormones. I felt like crying when I took them. I cut the dose that my doctor prescribed in half and I felt o.k. I told him what I did and he said that was o.k. He has not said anything about another surgery. I asked him about the rectecele/cystecele and he said that I had a slight rectecele. Then the last time that he examined me he said that everything seemed fine that he thought that the pain I was having was from bladder spasms so he gave me a prescription for uro-blue and said to see him in 6 mo. I am totally confused. I wonder if I have rectecele/cystecele or if it is bladder spasms?SOme days are not as bad as others. It usually gets worse as the day goes on and I am on my feet. It feels like my vagina needs to be tacked up. He examined me lying down. How can he tell anything that way? Urologist had me to lie down, but he had me cough and hear down. I guess I will find out after next week when I go see urologist. I would like to get my op- reports and let him look at them, but I am afraid that it might make this doctor mad and maybe not want to help me anymore. I am praying about it, but I don't think that it is going to go away on it's own. I do not relish the idea of another surgery. I counld wind up worse. I would just die. This has been a long year. It has worn on me. It is getting me down. One OB/GYN that I saw prior to hysterectomy told me to do kegel exercises, talk to my preacher and come back in 3 weeks. I said Do you know how long 3 wks. is? That was 2 or 3 months after the ablation. It was something to hold on each day. I thought that I was going nuts!!!I never went back to him. It seems that it is hard to get any one to help you if you have a problem. I am also waking up with some pain in the kidneys area. They checked my urine at my last visit. *** Cotton Blossom

Cotton blossom, I'm so sorry to hear you are still not feeling well. Following up with a urologist is a good idea but if you could find a Uro Gynecologist that would be even better. They specialize in cystoceles, rectoceles and prolapses. You do not have to go through your Dr to get your surgical report. Go to the medical records office at the hospital you had your surgery done at and request a copy of your records. I have had Anterior and posterior repair and have just developed a new prolapse so I know what you are going through. The falling out feeling and the pressure is intense and by the end of the day even my legs hurt. Kegels are a good way to keep things from getting worse, you can be referred for physical therapy where a therapist will show you how to do pelvic floor excercises to help. Good luck and keep us posted.
