Can a cystocele and rectocele repair help tighten up vagina?

Can a cystocele and rectocele repair help tighten up vagina?

Yes: If you explain that is part of your goal, usually the gyn will avoid this though so as not to cause problems with painful intercourse. Instead they will build up the support at the opening which in effect narrows the opening, making things more snug.

Can a cystocele and rectocele repair help to tighten vagina?

Can a cystocele and rectocele repair help to  tighten vagina?

That depends.: The primary goal of cystocele and rectocele surgery is to repair the damaged tissue that was supporting the bladder and rectum from prolapsing or dropping into the vagina. Some surgical procedures will narrow or tighten the vagina while others will not. I would recommend making your wishes known to your surgeon prior to surgery so that your expectations can better be met. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a hysterectomy, rectocele/cystocele repair all under spinal anesthesia?

Is it possible to have  a hysterectomy, rectocele/cystocele repair  all  under spinal anesthesia?

Yes: This operation is low enough down in the abdomen that it can be done with spinal anesthesia. You will probably receive some IV sedation to help you relax during the case. Discuss your requests for anesthesia with your anesthesiologist before the operation. Hope all goes well. ...Read more

Do your homework: A gynecologist, urogynecologist or uroogist most commonly perform this type of surgery. Be sure that your surgeon has a lot of experience performing these types of procedures. Selecting the appropriate type of repair for your specific issue is very important and will effect your outcome and long term satisfaction. Don't hesitate to get a second opinion. ...Read more

Grade 2 cystocele and rectocele grade 1-2 uterine prolapse. No sensation of heaviness etc would you repair while doing sling for stress incontenence?

Probable not: If you are currently asymptomatic, i would probably not recommend repairing the cystocele or rectocele providing they are not causing any issues. That said, a number of factors go into determining whether to have surgery or not. I would suggest you discuss your options with your physician and follow their recommendation. ...Read more

Here are some ...: The cystorectocele to a degree after hysterectomy is nothing uncommon, but indicates you have weak pelvic supporting muscles & tissues, which may in turn predispose its recurrence although surgical repair may be inevitable. As to when and how to repair it, that should be decided after proper evaluation & counseling though collaborating with surgical specialist of such procedures. Best wish ... ...Read more
