I am a 47 year old woman who had successful rectocele surgery a year ago. Now the underlying problem of pelvic floor dysfunction has come to light.
The consultant discharged me saying there is nothing else that she can do for me, the surgery was a success & I had some physio but without success as most of the time, I am too ill to make 6 weekly regular appointments.
Since the operation I have completely changed my diet.
I.e. No dairy, no gluten & no meat, just rice, fruit and veg
I am not over weight and was until two years ago very fit and active.
Now, apart from the constant pain, I am unable to go to the toilet naturally (or indeed with laxatives or enemas) and even Picolax doesn't work and just induces vomiting,
Bouts of infection & toxicity occur on average every 10 days, leading to high temperatures, breathing difficulties, chest pains, headaches, tremors, inability to sleep, aphasia and depression.
Even my eyesight has suffered and cataracts have been a result of the infections. Now hair loss has started and I need almost constant antibiotics and Valium for infection/pain and relaxing pelvic spasms. The antibiotics of course negate my HRT treatment and I seem to have zero immunity and catch each and every cold and infection going around.
I live as a 90 yr old would at the end of their life.
Having done some research online it looks as thou there are treatments .
