Can vaginal vault prolapse after a hysterectomy with a cystocele and a rectocele can cause pain and discomfort in abdomen and mid/low back on the left?
Yes. It's not uncommon to have lower abdominal and back pain and discomfort with vaginal prolapse. This usually worsens as the day progresses and the tissues herniated more into the vagina, much like herniated tissue in other parts of the body cause discomfort at times. See a Urogynecologist for an evaluation.
Yes. yes it pulls down vaginal vault, bladder and rectum causes symptoms.
I've had a bladder sling and hysterectomy 8 years ago. Now I think I have a vaginal vault prolapse with a rectocele…what can be done?
Prolapse. Prolapse can be relieved by the use of a pessary on occasion or by surgical correction. The most common procedure is the sacrospinous fixation. The best thing for you to do is see a Gyn for further evaluation. With vault prolapse it is often best to seek out a Gyn that specializes in surgery or robotics, although most generalists can help.
