    Question Has anyone heard of rectocele?

    I have had problems with my bowels and bladder for a long time. I had surgery for a Rectal Prolapse about 4 years ago. I was told that my voluntary and involuntary muscles were bad, but the surgeon said there was nothing she could do to help that. I went to PT to help strengthen them and have worked hard on my own for a long time. Then a little over a year ago I became incontinent- bowels and bladder. I finally started seeing specialists last June. I have had the Interstim Therapy Implant since September, which did help with my urinary problems. I had injections of Seleca this past December and still things aren't right and my quality of life still sucks. Yesterday, I was told that I could possibly have Rectocele, which I guess requires surgery. I need to be checked for it. I'm just so confused- I have tried so hard to have a life, but because I have so many issues- I really wonder if I will ever have even a near normal life again. I have been so depressed over this whole health issue and don't know what I'm supposed to do?

    Dear Grammie,

    I have this and a few other concerns, after the findings from a MRI for my pelvic floor.

    [I just found this message board yesterday, and made my first post today under "Trasabdominal Surgery." Maybe someone will reply to my post, and offer us both some news.]

    Go online, and read about rectocele. Maybe this will hep you find something?

    For me, the only quality of life is trying to enjoy everyday, in spite of myself!

    Just follow your intuition. Do research on the Internet or library. Make sure your spouse gives you plenty of hugs and kisses!

    If I learn of anything to help you, I will come back and post.

    Make today the best day of your life!

    In Spite of Ourselves/Hope with faith

    Hi there, you are not alone, I have the same problem and will have surgery in about 8 weeks. I had the same surgery 10 years ago and it really wasn't a bad experience. Hope you get sorted out.
