In brief: Relatively short
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.
