Thanks for the download Rectal Prolapse Healing Guide. This is how it helped me:
One, and mainly, it was so encouraging to know that lots of people have this problem.
Two, it was good to know that there are things you can do to improve matters.
My situation is this: I had a much-too-deep episiotomy in 1970. I was incontinent 2 days afterwards, but then things settled down except for the odd incident, until I needed a hysterectomy and some other related stuff around 1995. Then it all came back, egged on by a period of stress.
For years I’ve been to doctors & hospitals, who never seemed to get to the bottom of it (no pun intended!), but finally the colorectal surgeon ordered 2 very detailed tests. One of them, an elaborate barium enema-type thing, was videoed, and I actually saw the rectum collapsing on screen, as it happened. The nurse said it was a classic and she would use it in training her students.
As a result the doctor offered me a vental mesh rectopexy, which is scheduled for next month. I would prefer not to have it, due to the possible side-effects, but I think it’s my best option.
Thanks for your interest, and your website. It really helped me emotionally. I’ll let you know how I get on with the op.
