Colon Rectal of GYN

Hi Ladies:

Who did your rectocele repair and did you go vaginal or rectum. My GYN said she would do it vaginal the colon rectal doc. said at my age (49) he would do it rectally. I want it to be done with the best results. I am having trouble rectually and not vaginally. I have tailbone pain and irritation so I would think it should be fixed there, right? I don't know. Which heals faster, and not so uncomfortable. And Ladies have you had good results for having it repaired. I thought I was going to be able to live with this but this week is not so good. : (

Hi Tina Mine was repaired during my TVH, and the repairs (both rectocele and cystocele) were done vaginally. My rectocele has not returned so far - it's been four years now.

Hi Tina!

I had my cystocele, rectocele, enterocele and a vault suspension done vaginally by a uro/gyn. It's been a little over 1 year and and so far, so good!

Hi Tina,
I had both of mine done vaginally. I think no matter how you have it repaired surgery is surgery and some pain can be expected. Tissue takes time to heal, I would expect a minimal of 6 weeks post-op before you notice improvement. Good luck with your surgery, please keep us posted.
