    Re: rectal prolapse

    Hi Sally,

    I wasn't sure either but the longer I waited the worse it got so I would go to the doctor if I were you. Go see a Practaligest Who specializes with this. You will feel a lot better once you know what it is and what to do about it. I know it can be embarrassing for you but they are use to it and you would be surprised at how many people are going through the exact same thing as us. Take care and keep us posted

    Thanks Elley. I have never heard of a Practaligest. I guess I will have to be referred by my doctor and also will have to wait months to get an appointment with the specialist. What do I do in the mean time? I am getting so anxious and depressed too.

    Hi Sally,

    First try not to be depressed or anxious. I know its hard when you don't know why something is happening, that's why you need to see your doctor. Call your doctor and check if you need a referral, or maybe check with his nurse and explain your problems. If you need to go in to see your doctor, make an appointment as soon as possible so you will know what is going on with your body. He then can refer you to a colon rectual doctor. It might be just hemorrhoids in which case you can have them banded or have surgery on them.

    Take care,
    Elley

    Re: rectal prolapse

    Hi Sally,

    I thought I had hemorrhoids, too. Boy was I shocked to learn about rectal prolapse. Doesn't mean you don't have hemorrhoids, but it's good to check it out and not wait too long.

    Elley,

    Glad you're doing better. I know what you mean about the morning dump. I have to tell you though, my "new normal" is that I go a little bit many times during the day. It's kind of strange, but not so bad. Especially going on trips or into work, I never have to worry about getting a good morning dump. :-)

    It sounds like you're doing everything right, it took me a while with food, too. But now I can pretty much it anything. Good luck with everything!

    Best,
    Linda

    Hi Linda:

    Thanks for your help.

    How does going little bit many times during the day work. For me if I can't completely go in the morning then I have to wait for next day to go. Nothing moves during rest of the day even though I know there so much more to go.
    Would like to find out how you do it.
    Best,
    Sally

    Re: rectal prolapse

    Hi Sally,

    Linda and I both had surgery for our prolasped rectum and because of what they moved around inside us it makes us have a new normal...its kinda like only able to move a little out at one time and going more during the day,instead of it all out at once. I'm not sure why. I was like you before I had surgery, if I couldn't get it all out in the morning I would not be able to go until the next day, which would make me bloated and gassy. So I would have a standard diet for me after trying different foods and what would work for me almost everyday was this: Breakfast I had multigrain oatmeal (not instant) I cook it for 4 minutes in the microwave...I would put cranberries, blueberries, walnuts and sunflower seeds in it, with 2 pieces of light orewheat bread, milk and coffee. For lunch I had Bocca Burger on whole wheat bread with tomatoes and lettuce, dinner was mixed vegstables (lots) with pinto beans and I would sprinkle ground flax seed over it. I also drank at least 3 or 4 bottles of water, and ate fruit during the day...mostly oranges. I ate very little meat, since it is harder for me to digest. This worked very good for me before surgery. Now I still eat a lot of fruit and vegstables but have to cut out the nuts and seeds. I'm still adjusting since i just had surgery in August. Linda had hers last December I think so she is doing much better. I hope this helps.

    Elley

    Re: rectal prolapse

    Hey Sally,

    LOL. Elley and I are on the same page. I really haven't done anything since surgery either, it's just the way my system now seems to work.

    I wrote the next part before I read Elley's post, but it seems like we're both saying the same things...

    I used to be like you -- if I couldn't go in the morning I couldn't go the rest of the day. I will say that after surgery I was eating a lot of Activia yogurt, which supposedly helps your system get into whack. Also, I was using Citriucel first thing in the morning as recommended by my doctor. That probably also helped. Although I don't need it any more. Like Elley I was eating a lot of oatmeal. I'd also recommend the usual - fruits and veggies instead of empty calories, and water instead of sodas, that kind of thing. Again, Elley and I are on the same wavelength on this.

    But if you do have Rectal Prolapse, not much will help that except, eventually, surgery. Elley's right, I had my surgery quite a while ago, and I feel great. It's really a pain to go through, but eventually it will be a really good thing.

    Let us know how you're doing!

    Best,
    Linda
