I has a rectal prolapse; and told surgery could become an emergency. Having had a vaginal prolapse, I had no idea what was in store for me. He removed 24"of colon; capped off the original area; opened a hole in side of rectum and sealed w/mesh. I left hospital w/infection and had an 8.3cm hernia operated on at Mayo. Now I have terrible gastro issues and my pain is like labor - nerves fire if I walk much. Once the nerves go off, all I can do is lie down. Fetynol may help; I don't know how bad it would be w/o. When I had the defecating ptoctogram, the tube must have hit area he closed off because I was shaking, I had so much pain. I feel a "rock" inside that, when I walk, pushes inward and aggravates the nerves. Removing mesh is too risky. I had an SI injection that gave same pain. Do you know about sacral plexus? Someone along this journey mentioned this - nerve damage. I was so active and healthy and blindly trusted this dr. Redundant colon, he said, is why he removed the colon (24") no life now. My rt leg has gotten weaker/painful; possibly from the rear ending, , but surgery has complicated everything. I also got lost in the system between military and civilian doctors so, no continuity. I hope this helps. Never had issues as far as cramping, but normal function is gone since surgery.
