I had sigmoid resection 2 weeks ago, now have pain with BMs…

Customer Question
I had sigmoid resection...

I had sigmoid resection 2 weeks ago, now have pain with BMs and I think I had a rectal prolapse of about 1-2 inches with a lot of pain. What should I do?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Pain mostly with BMs, especially after second or third or if they are loose. I also have no urge to have BM, only left quad pain and distention when I need to go.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
