Brief Answer:
Regular exercise and a healthy diet will help.

Detailed Answer:


Rectocele repair surgery is a vaginal repair surgery in which no external stitches are needed. Only vaginal stitches are there. The recovery usually takes 5-7 days and you can be ambulatory from 48 hours after the surgery.

To have an early recovery you can start with abdominal and respiratory exercises like abdominal breathing and deep breathing exercises, straight leg raising, etc. Having a light and easy to digest diet will help. Having proper antibiotics and multivitamin supplements are also necessary for an early recovery.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
