I had a rectal and bladder prolapse 2 years ago in Feb 2012. ever since this repair I have suffered pain in the rectum constantly. this pain continues on all day. I have been prescribed amitriptyline and have increased this to 75mg a night as prescribed by my doctor. I am currently under a miss el neil at the uclh in London through the NH's and she wishes to investigate this problem further than my previous urogynacologist back home where I live. i also was prescribed pregabalin just recently which seemed to help but my gp wants me to try gaberpentin only because this is a cheaper option. i just worry that as this has to be increased gradually i fear the pain will be worse whilst i wait for this to kick in. has any one else suffered this anal pain after a repair of the rectum. i have been told this is nerve damage but the intense pain this, is., also a crawling sensation and feels sore inside. i do not have piles i know that for certain. please if anyone can relate to this i would love to hear from you.
