Prolapse in all 3 departments
I have had 3 children. My age is 59 yrs.
First Caesarean section suffered IBS symtoms after.
Second normal delivery very difficult forceps delivery
Third normal delivery
1). 10 years of low back pain on waking. Fine after mobile.
2). Believe my prolapse is from childbirth, and back pain/disc degeneration.
3). Discomfort anus 24/7, feeling of obstruction, incomplete evacuation.
4). NHS disregarded after 3 years of investigations. Pain management advised.
5) Had haemorrhoidal symptoms, no constipation, no itching, few sessions bleeding 2013. Had colonoscopy negative apart from haemorrhoids banding suggested/NHS refused to band.
6). Sent for physio biofeed. NHS nurse said this was not for me as I did not have constipation. She did not advise biofeed.
7). Went for colorectal opinion privately. Different points of views.
Banding, HALO surgery, Stapled surgery, injections, pudendal nerve block injections, Uterine surgery, Finally Ventro rectopexy.
8). Back MRI negative for prolapse involvement
My symptoms now March 2015
Discomfort anus 24/7
Worse in the morning on waking, relieved with less pressure on back.
Worse discomfort when sitting especially on a hard chair.
Discomfort eased when standing however always there in a subtle way.
Weak anal sphincter muscles slight occasional accidents with bowels.
Occasional urine leakage, after coughing and full bladder.
Much embarrassing flactulance.
A need to wipe my bottom after a poop.
MRI lying down proctogram shows prolapse in all 3 compartments.
Sitting proctogram shows distal intussusception
Anorectal physiology test show week anal muscle control.
I have seen a number of specialists for opinion.
My anul symptoms began 5 years ago with a pushing sensation In my bowel at night time. Irregular motions usually soft.
This has now led to prolapse however I am NOT worse with discomfort at the end of the day. Which I believe to be the norm with prolapse.
I wake with this discomfort after sleeping on my back.
However MRI back scan appears negative to prolapse involvement.
Has anyone had a ventro rectopexy operation?
I would be pleased to make contact.
