hi, do you think i can fix rectal prolapse by myself?

No: Rectal prolapse happens because the fibers that hold the rectum in place have stretched out. No way to repair this short of surgery. There are several different operations. Find an experienced colon and rectal surgeon who can help you select the best one for you
