Hi Anon

Thank you for your post and I'm sorry your surgery didn't seem to go as planned.

Did you have bladder or uterine prolapse surgery?

What kind of surgery did you have? If you had a Colpocleisis—this is a procedure that cures the prolapse, but it results in a foreshortened vagina that will not permit intercourse.

Urinary tract infections and other urinary symptoms may occur due to the frequently associated cystocele . This is a hernia-like disorder in women that occurs when the wall between the bladder and the vagina weakens, causing the bladder to drop or sag into the vagina.

Hemorrhoids and constipation may also occur as a result of the associated rectocele (a similar condition to cystocele, only the rectum protrudes into the vagina). If you are constipated, eating more fiber can help.

In more severe cases of prolapse, ulceration and infection may occur.

Can you give us more information, Anon? And how long ago was this surgery?

We look forward to hearing back from you!
