Very new to this but reading forums like this has been a game changer for me, as I have had horrible experiences with doctors, that just do not listen at all. They look at you, and give you a personal opinion, rather than a medical one.
I have recently discovered that I have a rectocele, by reading a forum, and then confirmed by the doctor that did my pph hemorrhoidectomy just over a month ago, and upon my check up it was discovered that I have a rectocele, I am still struggling to get a actual doctors appointment, which is another story for another type of forum all together. I just wanted to get some idea of everyone's symptoms? My problem is I have had mine so long not knowing what I had and it has unfortunately after the success of my hemorrhoidectomy , it seems like now the prolapse is trying to push past my sphinkter it seems like now that the piles are gone there is more room so to speak and where the piles use to be it is now filling up with the tube (Colon) that is suppose to be straight. My body has also gone mad, because I struggle to empty my bowels ( I have done for 2 years, and it was murder with my last pregnancy), I am not constipated, and I take all kinds of potions to make sure just in case which then leads to having very soft stool. Which does not help me at all, my problem is my body goes into what feels like shock, and I start to have contractions ( it feels like contractions), it literally feels like I am giving birth, but at the wrong end of my body! I try very very hard to stop it from happening but it does not work...... plus gravity is not my friend. It even starts to push out when I am in the upright position, standing or walking, and I can hardly walk at the best of times, I can push it back in, only for it to pop back out. Plus I get blood clots at the very tip which actually makes the skin pop and bleed! I do all kinds of things to help me actually have a bowl movement, splinting, bending, squatting, squeezing, jiggling, guiding, you name it, but it all is just the most horrendous experience I am to afraid to eat now, because what goes in must come out!! I am house bound, because I am scared that I will need to the loo, and of the pain that I am in, I feel so sorry for my kids because they have actually lost their mommy, and my soon to be 5 month old is stuck in the house to because of me
Any experiences would be greatly appreciated. As I have found that when I read about others I realize how much I am actually going through and that I am not alone.
Stay strong ladies!
