I was wondering if anyone can offer and advice, since my op a year ago I’m having a lot of bowel problems but it’s got to the point some days I can’t pass wind or stools as it feels completely blocked then I feel quite uncomfortable and have pain. Does this sound like a prolapse? The help I’m getting is useless from my GP and local gastro consultants. If it’s been blocked for a while when I do go I have a sudden burst of blood front and back. Any help/advice would be really appreciated xx

With symptoms like that you need to go back to your gynae I think.

Was it a bsge consultant (if not then get a referral to one instead)? and was the surgery for bowel endo?

I had a bowel shave 6months ago and have had digestive issues but nothing like you describe and no blood involved..

Before my surgery my bowel was distorted out of position and the whole a bit compressed by adhesions and I would faint and have pain but again no blood. I had a sigmoidoscopy which cleared me for endo inside the bowel.


It was under a bsge consultant, they did have to remove endo off the bowel. Since then I’ve also had horrible digestive issues, pretty much from day 1 of that surgery.

I’ve had a sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy & endoscopy. I mention the issues I’m dealing with and don’t really get a response but this is general gastro consultants. I wondered if I would be better going back to my consultant. Silly question but will my GP need to refer me back?


Hi kirstiexxx,

Did you find out what was going on? You aren't alone, I'm getting virtually the same symptoms as you. Have you found any relief x



No I still haven’t, things carry on getting worse though and they’re now looking at my bowel and if endo and/or adhesions are the problem. Have you seen anyone? x


Ah I hope they find the answer for you ❤

No I haven't seen anyone yet but I'm waiting to. I had a hysterectomy 5 years ago so although I don't get the bleeding vaginally I'm getting the same symptoms. I had them before and it was endo on my rectum, pouch of Douglas and it had penetrated my colon so I'm expecting it to have grown again. You might have endo in your rectum ( the bleeding) endo also likes to grow on haemorrhoids!!!

Im also passing wind vaginally ( nice) !!!

Oh the things we put up with eh?!

Do you get upper gastric pain too? Are you sick as well?

I will let you know if I get any answers, take care x


It had penetrated your colon? How did they treat that? I never knew it can grow on haemorrhoids too, I’ve been told I have them as well. Because the bowel specialist tried saying all my symptoms are down to haemorrhoids which is a load of rubbish.

I do get upper gastric pain, I find it so uncomfortable and the trapped wind is horrible. I’ve never been sick, just often feel quite nauseous

Ha I know, it’s all fun & games 🙈 x
