How bad is the pain after hemorroid and rectocele repair surgery?

Depends

Culdocentesis
Hemorrhoid surgery and rectocele surgery are different surgeries and each have several options available. Would be best to have the specific surgery you are considering to provide an accurate answer. For example, an exicisional hemorrhoidectomy can be a very painful procedure.

Depends.

Can you tell me about rectocele surgery?

Two general methods

Culdocentesis
Rectocele is basically a hernia of the rectal wall into the vagina. Many women have no symptoms from rectocele and do not need repair. Symptomatic rectocele can be repaired with sutures but comes back frequently. It can also be repaired with mesh. This technique may not come back as often but can have other complications.

What is the recovery like after surgery to correct a rectocele?

Relatively short

Culdocentesis
You should discuss the planned procedure and post-op care with your surgeon. Generally, a rectocele (posterior) repair recovery time is relatively short. You should be up and walking the day after surgery. You may experience some vaginal and rectal discomfort and pressure. You may be back to relatively normal activities except for heavy lifting and sexual activity within a couple of weeks.

What are treatments/surgery for my rectal prolapse and rectocele? I'm 77.

Rectocele

Rectal_prolapse
Surgery for rectal prolapse is different then surgery for rectocele. Rectocele can be corrected by vaginal approach and can be considered as outpatient procedure. Rectal prolapse needs to be corrected by abdominal approach and can be performed by laparoscopy or Robot-assisted.

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

When should a patient agree to surgery for a rectocele? How successful is this operation?

Symptoms bothersome

Open-uri20120707-26403-1ivvttv
mild rectocele may not cause any symptoms and often unnoticed, but severe cases can cause much discomfort, trouble with BM, pressure, sensation of incomplete BM, and in some cases with severe. Rectocele is generally not a dangerous condition, so surgical treatment is only needed if symptoms are bothersome and conservative treatments not adequate. Talk to your doc/surgeon about it. Good luck.

I am having outpt surgery this week for a huge rectocele. Should I be worried? Is it safe?

Yes

2955159
a rectocoele is essentially a hernia. There is a weakness in the area between your vagina and rectum called the rectovaginal fascia. To repair this, the fascia is cut, and the fascia and underlying muscles (levator ani muscles) are sewn together to strenghten the weakness in the fascia. Although it is not quite the same, you can think of it as a large episiotomy repair.
