Hello, more than 5 years ago I had a complete pelvic prolapse. The year prior I had a complete abdominal hysterectomy. I also had the TNT sling I believe it's called for urinary leakage. I have been in pain majority of the time since I've had the procedures. I also have a bad spine so I take medications for that. I am in a lot of pain and continue to feel like my bladder is coming out or down like the crowning of a baby and also have a lot of pain from the bottom of my spine all the way to my rectum. I am not sexually active have not been since the surgery. I'm just too uncomfortable. I have to lay down most of the day because of the pain and because it also takes gravity off of the feeling of pressure pushing everything down. I'm not sure why I continue to have this pain. They had put me on some pain meds they were very strong and made me very constipated one of the rules after having this procedure is to not get constipated. If you do not have a bowel movement everyday drink milk of magnesia. I do so but it doesn't always help. Over the past will last month the doctor up my medicine and I literally couldn't have a bowel movement. I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital. I managed after lots of suffering I won't go into too much detail to have a bowel movement with lots of pain and bleeding. 2 Days Later the same thing. I have not ever been that constipated. Since then I have been in excruciating pain from my tailbone to my rectum. I do not know if I caused damage inside or what because of the painful difficult passing of my bowels. I tried to drink lots of fluids to make sure that everything is working properly. I guess I need to see a GynoUrologist again. Any advice would be most helpful. Thank you so much for reading. I am a sixty-year-old woman and this is really put a damper on my lifestyle and activities. I am in so much pain I cannot do the normal task that a person needs to do. Thanks again.
