Customer Question
Hi, I had surgery...

Hi, I had surgery August 2017 for a rectocele that had protruded in through the Vagina....have had problems ever since. I have Chronic Fibromyalgia, so my Dr. figured out my extreme discomfort was from the Pelvic floor muscle needing stretched by a physical therapist because he thought Fibromyalgia was attacking it. Physical Therapy not helping. Started having sex after being scared to, and just noticed a few days later that the bulge that I had first found in the very beginning....was there once again a few days after having sex, right at the very front entrance of my Vagina...Extreme discomfort...and to me as always it feels like a bundle of nerves just eating at me in that location....please, please help me!!!!

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?

My health is fair...Chronic Fibromyalgia controlled with meds....COPD controlled with meds....But had this rectocele for like a year before the gynecologist decided to do surgery, one was afraid I'd never be able to have sex ever again....had the pessary ring for awhile, that was awful, Was to dry for that...I'm on HRT now though...

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No not really...other than that I'm fine....just this is driving me crazy....seems like a bundle of nerves down there just aggravating the hell out of me....very uncomfortable....no pain meds help....all I've had is Tramadol and Tylenol 3 no good...

That's your answer???? "Does the Dr. Think the surgery failed....it sounds like it....and does it need repeated??? I told you he's sending me to Physical Therapy for the Pelvic floor muscle, thinking its Fibromyalgia, but that's not working...That I now have that bulge once again in my vagina...LOTS of discomfort!! No surgery rescheduled, just me suffering....My next step of care is to come to the Mayo Clinic if someone can assure me that they feel it can be worth my trip please.....I can't live this way the rest of my life...Please answer in more detail or call me,(###) ###-####....Ty and God Bless

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.
