Rectocele Cystocele Surgery Recovery
I'm having a surgery where the dr told me I'm having my rectocele and cystocele fixed, they didn't tell me what the op is called? Is it a vaginoplasty?
Probably not...: The medical term for this surgery is "Anterior and Posterior Colporrhaphy". You might also hear it called an "Anterior and Posterior Repair", or "A&P Repair". Vaginoplasty usually refers to cosmetic vaginal surgery, sex reassignment surgery or fixing birth defects of the vagina. Best wishes! Read more

Gr3 cystocele gr3 rectocele. Now something bulging out. At ER they told me 3 hr wait it's not an emergency. Should I go to a different hospital?
Pelvic Prolapse: It sounds like you have pelvic organ prolapse. It is not an emergency as long as your not having pain. If you have had a hysterectomy you may have a enterocele as well as a rectocele and cystocele. You will need a thorough physical examination and I would recommend urodynamic evaluation and a cystoscopy. It can be repaired but at your young age will require surgery. Read more
