If the enterocele is removed, can it grow back? Worse case scenario if I don't opt to have the enterocele removed? Possible complication of surgery

Can p.O.P, or enterocele cause rectal pain to be worse and more constant during menstrual cycle? If pertinent, in add. Uterus is also retroverted.

Maybe.: Usually, pop and enteroceles are painless, but if you have a rectocele and tend towards constipation or harder stools at that time of the month, then there may be more pressure in your pelvis/rectum causing pain. The retroverted uterus is also pushing on the rectum and is lower in your pelvis (pop) which may make stool transit more difficult. What does you doctor think? Have you tried a pessary? ...Read more
