Hi I had rectal prolapse surgery today at 1:30 pm

Hi I had rectal prolapse surgery today at 1:30 pm and I have a bladder prolapse that will be repaired later . Oh and I got a colostomy Sept 12. Everything with the colostomy was fine. But now I feel the urge to urinate and I can't. It's been about 10 hours since the surgery. I did a ditz bath per doctor's order Did not urinate. I have been drinking a lot of liquids including hot herbal tea and now am using a heating pad on my abdomen. What else can I do? I don't want to go to ER. Oh and they have me 1 oxycodone for pain.

I m 58 years old and had a partial hysterectomy in 2000 and now have rectal prolapse and a returned retocele. I noticed the retocele I had repaired a few years prior returned as a result of my hysterectomy I had a defecography and was recommended retopexy with re-section. I m very nervous about this surgery as the reviews are anything but good. The prolapse is internal and my fear is incontinence with or without the surgery. Advise please, thank you. I m trying to avoid the surgery if at all possible.

I need a rectal prolapse repair. But I want a doctor with years of experience who does this all the time. Can you recommend a doctor near me that does this type of surgery. New York City, or Philadelphia is also close enough for me as I live in Allentown, PA

I was wondering if there is a device that could help an 80 year old woman who has a prolapsed rectum. She is no longer a candidate for surgery. If there is some type of product (like they have for hernias) that could help her at least have more mobility on the market I have not found one. Please advise.
