I have several various health issues going on at the moment but the most worrying one is regarding my bladder and bowel.
I had a full hysterectomy in 2003, with ovaries and a none cancerous cyst removed and a bladder repair all done in the one hit.
I was re-admitted 3 times with bowel problems and infections. I have not really been right since, although not as bad as things are now.
Over the last 2 years I again had the bladder problem of leakage at first it wasn’t too bad but got worse over time. I was sent to see a different surgeon and he found I had a severe prolapsed bladder some times you can see it and I push it back up. However they also found that my bowel had prolapsed into my bladder.
I was booked for an operation on the 1st of December. Sadly this was cancelled on the day with 25 other’s due to a bed shortage.
Since then I have had faeces coming out of my virginal area and some blood from my anal area, I have also had a fair amount of pain mostly in my left lower abdomen. My family doctor was concerned as she felt some sort of lump on my left bowel and wanted to me to go hospital that day; however I declined and said I would wait for an appointment. Since then I have been taken in by ambulance on New Years Eve and again last week and was admitted.
I am now under the Colorectal team. I was in for 4 day’s and no scans or any thing was done apart for pain control, I am now on Morphine, co-codamol and a heap of other medication. At no time was cancer mentioned to me by any of the various doctors or consultants I saw; however I was horrified when I realised that the team I am under is the specialist cancer team! I asked to come home from hospital as they had a virus break out and two wards were closed down, the doctors agreed on the understanding I would return today Tuesday 13th Jan for a pre-booked MRI and then see them again on Friday 16th for my results and find out the best way to deal with the two operations I need. Now all appointments have been cancelled and I am left in limbo.
All the surgeons I saw said they could feel the lump in my lower stomach but said” it could also be stool?
I have had small blood clots from the back passage and some small bleeding but this has not happened for over a week now.
Could it just have been a fluke and has now settled, or perhaps an infection? As I did have a bladder and kidney infection two weeks ago.
Any help or advice would be of great help to me.
I wish you all well
when i went last a few years ago i was told i had a slight prolapse of the womb but lately i can see it pushing out but it not all the time but is geting worse aslo when i want to open my bowels it come down more thanks can you advise me
Hi, I am 45 yrs old and train 5-7 hrs/wk, mostly kickboxing/bootcamp-type exercises , and have a full thickness/complete rectal prolapse. I am trying to determine the amt and kind of exercises that I can do post-surgery...as well as being curious as to whether anyone with complete rectal prolapse has tried a 3-mon anti inflammation diet with successful "remission."
I downloaded the book that was referenced in the uterus prolapse forum-- very helpful but not sure it it is too conservative?
I do not want to damage my pelvic floor further. I have a great diet, fit (still some excess weight but have maintained over 100lb weight loss with all the working out and no sugar/no flour food plan), strong vaginal muscles....the surgeon thinks it is the extensive training I have done --a lot of which is core strengthening....YIKES....unintended consequences....
Hi Turbra and welcome to ehealth: I agree with the surgeon...Kickboxing could be the culprit, but more important is what you will have to do post surgery....This surgery will curtail your life...Any further exercise could and probably would cause more problems...My best advice is to take it easy...Do what he/she says and don't make it worse...Take care...
