Conditions with symptom: 'prolapsed rectum'
Im having tests for a prolapsed rectum, I cant pass stool whether its hard or soft without straining, then it feels like I havnt finished, I had a Laparascopic ventral mesh rectopexy 6 months ago, but things havnt improved. It gets so uncomfortable in the rectum, what can I do.
I often have to push out my poop by inserting my finger into my vagina. It's like the poop is stuck and building up and pressing against the vaginal wall. I worry that my partner can feel it when we have sex, but I'm more worried about the health implications. Do you think this could be a prolapsed rectum or prolapsed vagina? I have had no children and I am 34 years old.
alison, i have had the same problem since i had my second child in 2000, i have never seen the doctor about it and have just put up with it for all this time, i kinda though i was the only person who had to do this! it has just became the norm for me... even though it is far from normal!have you been to see a doctor? i have thought about it, but was embarrassed :( its good to know im not the only one! i would really like to get it sorted out, maybe now that we have shared it with each other we should share it with the doctor and get it sorted out.
Hi Alison & Laura, I'm the same. I'm 25 and have suffered for a number of years. I have recently had a baby and it gotten much worse. Not sure which one it would be classed as but now I have seen this I will be visiting my doctor first thing on Monday to sort it out.
I have a prolapsed rectum. Are there any nonsteroidal creams.? Thanks.
I just found out after 12 years, just by reading this article that I have a prolapsed rectum. It has bothered me before when going number 2, but I never thought much else of it. I am a 17 year old male and I just found this out. It now concerns me a lot. How do I get help? Also, I feel very messed up in the rectal and lower intestine area. I feel an uncomfortable numbness in the upper back area inside my rectum randomly every day. This greatly worries me. Is it a tumor? How do I find out?? Please help.
after seing your site i now know i have a prolapsed rectum but also i can not no2 with out helping it out by reaching up inside and astimulating round the outside i need to do this 5 or 6 times a day please help i am 35 yr old male with this prob for many unhappy years
go to your doctor NOW! It has only gotten worse... and will only get worse. You will probably need an operation- which is fine in comparison with what you are going through now.
ive have recently had a Prolapsed Rectum repaired i stopped bleeding 4 days ago now i am bleeding heavly and am really worried
Hello. You really need to go back to the hospital. If your having heavy bleeding.
after having skin tags remove from outside anal,i get bad bunged up and could not pass water or poo,ended up in hospital and got cleared out.Now my prolapsed rectum is coming out of viginal entrance and is sometimes sore whilst sex docs say they wont opperate as in to young (im 42)
Hello Michelle, Greetings from the States I am your age and just underwent surgery for a prolapsed rectum and bladder. I have never had a child. I feel like strangling your doctors for being so insensitive! You should never have to suffer like this. Please find another doctor for a second opinion preferably a gynecologist who performs this type of surgery or a proctologist who is a surgeon as well. In addition to your condition to being painful, being unable to have a bowel movement is dangerous. Until you see someone you may want to try a stool softener as directed. I wish I could do more to help you.
Hi, I'm a 27 year old female with no children. I have a small internal bulge between my vagina and anus. It doesn't hurt and is firm to touch, I only feel it when I go to the toilet and clean myself. It feels raised as I wipe. Could this be internal piles or could it be a prolapsed rectum?
Go to a doctor at once - something that is firm to touch is more concerning than something soft and fleshy. It needs investigating.
a couple of weeks ago, i had a sharp pain whenever i went to the toilet, like half my rectum was missing. i felt a hard lump inside my rectum, which i though was the cause. The lump has now gone, but i haven't been to the toilet for about 5 days, and whenever i pass wind, i bleed from my rectum....... Any ideas?
This sounds like piles caused through straining. I'd buy some haemorrhoid cream, drink more water and eat more fibre.
I have multiple bowel movements throughout the day. The stools are thin, sometimes they have one side which is angular rather than round. I never feel that my rectum is completely empty and my vagina hurts after I have defecated, as though it were somehow attached to the rectum. I am kept awake at night by the pain from both vagina and rectum. Alternatively, if I have diarrhoea instead, my vagina then feels as though it is being stung by stinging nettles and I am unable to walk for the rest of the day.
Hey. I'm 23 with no kids or anything and I have exactly the same symptoms as you and I have been through all the tests (colonoscopy, defecating proctogram, anal manometry etc.) They concluded that I have rectal prolapse and rectocele, which basically means the rectum is prolapsing into the vagina. It can be fixed. In my case it looks like I'm having ventral rectopexy. Don't panic and look online forever until it gets worse, which is exactly what I did. Just go to the doctor go through the motions and they'll sort it out. Definitely too uncomfortable to carry on living with my love!
