Help please. Rectal prolapse!
Hi, this is the first time i have posted here.I have been reading the boards though and hope i can get some help and advice.I've had bowel problems for ages but this is just awlful! Some weeks ago i made a real effort to try and sort out my numerous problems.(one at a time).Starting with chronic constipation.As usual my Dr prescribed laxatives/fibre.These made the situation worse.Having tried all sorts i went for colonic irrigation (i was SO embarrassed ,but i was desperate!)I went twice.the second time when i was sent to the toilet afterwards i found that the same problem i'd been experiencing for a while,it felt like i needed to go but it was stuck!
She said this just should'nt happen and i may have a "pocket"up there or a virginal prolapse affecting the bowel.Anyway it kept happening! I thought it was constipation,but it felt just like a golf ball up there.So back i went to the Drs.She examined me front and back.she said i had a slight virginal prolapse which could be the reason.I've been refered to a gynacologist and a bowel specialist.
But i did the "Mirror test" as i'd seen on these boards.I know it's a rectal prolapse and it's just simply freaking me out.(Sometimes i have to press it to get it to go back in).I'm SO,SO,embarrassed about this.I hate it!I find it so hard to talk about,so i'm hoping i can get some feedback from someone.
My over riding thing is horror and embarassment.Apart from the golf ball" problem.my whole behind area aches,tops of my legs ache,wind(Oh **** thats another story!).I'm SO fed up and stressed.Have i got 2 damned prolapses!! I wish i could pretend this was'nt happening.Will it get worse.I'm going to my sons wedding in the states in a few months! Do i tell the bowel dr about the colonics? (i dont think they made it worse,i think she just helped my bowels to work better and then i noticed it more).Any advice very gratefully received.This is awlful!
