Rectocele in perineum?

When I originally went to the uro/gyn for evaluation, he told me I had a small stage 2 rectocele, and that for the most part my posterior wall was solid.

Yesterday when I was in for uro testing, he examined me again and found a large stage 3 rectocele in the perineal (sp?) area. However, he said it was fixable.

If my vaginal wall is strong, how is this rectocele fixed? I can't find anything that would describe this type of repair. I don't go back for a week, and would love to do some research in the meantime.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ary You're right, the repair for this one is a little different. In this article, on page 820, they explain how it is fixed, and cite a reference in case you want to find out more:

Also, this link (warning: graphic photos within) does a great job of explaining the different types of rectoceles and rectocele repairs:

I hope this helps!
