Recently diagnosed with rectal prolapse. I have never been pregnant. Could not have happened at a more difficult time in my life as I was forced to end a 20+yr. relationship.
I'm in my 50's.
I had very severe problems with constipation due to the sudden and extremely hurtful ending to my relationship. Two doctors have told me I need surgical repair and the stress and inflammation caused by the break up (couldn"t eat or sleep for months) was a significant factor in causing the rectal prolapse. I had almost daily fecal impactions for
several months with bleeding.
I read this type of repair could negatively impact future ability to have a normal sexual
relationship. Would like to know what type of surgical repair would offer the least complications. How long is the recovery process?
