General Surgeon 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per my surgical experience, the rectocele has nothing to do with UTI.

The cystocele does give recurrent UTI. So correction of cystocele will prevent the part of UTI, if the causative is cystocele. But you can have UTI from other reasons than cystocele.

Hope this clarifies your mind.

Thanks.
