painful sex after rectocele repair surgery

it has been almost 3 months since i had the rectocele repair, and i am still having painful sex!!! the first problem was undissolved stitches in the vagina that were cutting my husband. so i went back to my ob & she removed them, as well as some "leftover hymen" (?) that was becoming enflamed & irritated. she cauterized all the scar tissue and gave me some estrogen cream to use to expedite the healing. but here we are 3 weeks later, and we just tried to have relations and i am burning & spotting!! how long will this take before things are back to normal? i am getting frustrated that my ob never mentioned any of these issues before i had the surgery. i know everyone is different, but i am starting to feel bad for my husband, as well as for myself! i mean, what if i never enjoy sex again??

Unhappy Re: painful sex after rectocele repair surgery

I too am having the same problem. My Surgery was 6 months ago and intercourse is so painful it is impossible!
My surgeon didn't tell me any of this prior to the surgery.
Also, I had no idea the recovery time would be so long and so painful.
I am getting an appointment with a different OBGYN to see if the problem can be fixed, however, I have my doubts from everything I have read about other women who have tried everything.
I dread going through any kind of surgery again to try to fix the problem and just have it turn out the same way.
