Ok...Strange Question

This may be a strange question, but here goes:

I have been reading about rectocele, and the symptoms of such. Is having a hemroid a symptom? I have the voiding issues (have for years, just didn't know there was a name for it) and I do that splinting thing at every bm, but now I have something new.
Does anyone have a problem with wiping (strange, I know)? I mean when you wipe, it seems you never come clean? I go through 1/4 roll at every bm trying to "finish" wiping.

Is this also a symptom of rectocele? Do you think I need to seek treatment?
I also have the stress incontance (I leak with sneezes, coughs, etc).
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Good question!

I am having surgery for a rectocele in a month and I, too, have similar problems with "cleaning up". My hemorhoids started way back before I gave birth, so I do not think that is the total problem. I would appreciate knowing the answer to that question as well.

My feeling on a rectocele is that it doesn't hurt to go in for a diagnosis and evaluation. That way if there's something that needs immediate attention then you'll know, and if not, then you can take some time to decide if you want to do something about it or not. The "cleaning up" issue may be the result of having to splint instead of allowing nature to take it's course. I used to have that trouble with splinting, but not with an enema.

Thank you for asking that question! I was too embarassed to ask it, and I felt it was more an issue with my weight than with a rectocele (although I've been this weight awhile and never had a problem before).

Until you're evaluated, I find using Charmin wipes (or other personal wipes) really help in getting yourself clean.

I think anytime you develop new symptoms or symptoms that seem out of the norm, than you should contact your doctor. It may be something simple, or it may not be. You won't know unless you make an appt to see your doctor.
