Colporrhaphy Repair Of Vaginal Wall
Laparoscopic hernia: I perform both open and laparoscopic hernias, but would have it done laparoscopically if I had a hernia. The lap hernia has a smaller scar, less pain, quicker recovery time, allows you to look at the opposite side for a hernia (and repair it if found) and the same recurrence rate as open inguinal hernia repairs. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Will the combination of retroverted uterine, resection of 7cm proximal rectum & thinning of rectalvaginal septum cause trouble for pregnancy/delivery?
Prolapse: The problem that causes urinary bladder prolapse is a weakness of the musculature of the pelvic floor usually caused by trauma from vaginal deliveries and in the worst case the bladder protrudes outside of the vagina.

What causes an infection and breakdown of vaginal / perennial repair following a vaginal delivery?
Several: The most common culprit of this type of infection is skin bacteria already present on the vulva. Vaginal bacteria can also play a role.

Both: Both will heal well. The abdominal mode requires an incision through the abdominal wall and there is usually more pain, but even then the pain is almost always well controlled with the current pain medications. In the long run they are the same, in the short term the recovery is easier after a vaginal hysterectomy for most women. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I havehad a nissen and hiatal hernia surgery then an abdominal wall reconstruction with surgical mesh then an abdominal wall reconstruction with pig?
Pig - yes: I can't tell from your description the exact mesh or where it was placed. But generally speaking, there are biologic mesh products, some of which are derived from pigs (porcine mesh). Porcine mesh products are processed such that all the cells are washed away, and only the underlying matrix remains. Thus, the risk of adverse reactions from the mesh are very low and the products are very safe. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Surgical technique: It is unlikely to cause harm but your surgeon will know exactly what was done and what techniques were used. It is likely they will want you to refrain at least for a brief period of time. Since we do not know exactly what was done surgically it is best we do not give a recommendation only 3 days after. I am glad your surgical recovery is going so well though. ...Read more
Need more info: A cone biopsy isn't a vaginal wall repair, but perhaps your physician did both. Ask, or get a copy of the operative note and see what is described. Billing for a procedure not done would be fraud and most physicians are honest, so it may have been done or could be a coding error. ...Read more
Usually normal: The rectum is just below the vagina. After childbearing, the tissue between the rectum and the vagina can be quite thin. If the rectum is full of stool, it can be felt through the vaginal wall. It would not be normal if the stool formed a huge uncomfortable bulge in the vagina. This is called a rectocele. Sometimes surgery is required to repair it if it is large. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is there really a difference between saggy vaginal wall and prolapse? Can you have sagging WITHOUT prolapse?
Degrees: Saggy is a slang term. Prolapse is a medical term. Likely both are describing the same thing. Certainly different degrees of prolapse exist.
