I am sorry you have had rectal prolapse.

have you had a lower back lumbar spine MRI scan? to look for pinched nerves and arthritis pinching nerves coming out of your spine? this can often cause back pain which can radiate down into your legs.

what did the lower back MRI scan show?

what is your height and weight? being overweight can put more pressure on your lower back and nerves there.

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.
