Rectum Spasms

Has anyone who had a/p repairs experience a sore rectum? I am 4 weeks post op and am having spasms inside my rectum periodically and it still feels like its bulging when I stand. I didn't experience this at first and has only started acting up recently. Should I call my doctor?

I would get this checked out just to make sure everything is ok and to give you peace of mind. I have dull constant aching in the rectum since my surgery. Sometimes it spikes to a sharp pain, but my gyno. said it will stop over time. Good luck!

Yes I would get horrible spasms after my posterior repair. It took a LONG time before they resolved but then when I started up pelvic floor therapy again WOW I would get them and I couldn't even walk sometimes. My PT showed me some exercises to help undo spasms which helped SO much!

what kind of surgery did you have?
What is a a/p surgerY?
I'm having a overlap sphincter repair in three months. Would I be getting the same symptoms?

Oh.. I also had a posterior repair repair as well as my uterus taken out. I had to have surgery an hour afterwards, as the doctor cut my vein and I was bleeding internally. Because I had the posterior repair, the doctor had to cut above my hair line to repair the vein.
Now I need a overlap sphincter repair because my bum muscle is the size of 3oclock to 9oclock. with scar tissue within the openness. the overlap surgery should tighten up the muscle. I"m hoping this will fix the problem in the present future
