If i strain myself as hard as i can a small portion of my inner rectum is shown. Is this a partial mucuosal prolapse? And the cause of my fecalbo ?
Not very useful: Rectal prolapse when the last portion of the large intestine protrudes through the anus. Hemorrhoids are swollen blood vessels that develop in the anus and lower rectum. Early rectal prolapse can mimic internal hemorrhoids making it difficult to tell these. Probably best test is to have a colorectal surgeon conduct exam by bearing down to show the prolapse. Protoscopy and colonoscopy may help. ...Read more

Should an 86 year old woman with rectal prolapse have another surgery after one year. Are there other ways? She had one wire surgically put across her anus to keep her rectum from falling out one year ago, the dr, wants to do it again. Is there another
This : This is a complicated problem. Treatment of rectal prolapse with a wire is outdated. An altemeier procedure (perineal rectosigmoidectomy) is usually the procedure of choice. Previous mesh placed in the pelvis, however, will make this procedure next to impossible. If the problem is as bad as it sounds, a low anterior resection with rectopexy will be the best choice. It should be done by an experience colorectal surgeon. Find a new surgeon fast. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
