Is euthanasia an appropriate option for a cat with a rectocele?
Cat is age 14, and has battled urinary incontinence for about 2 years, and now she has the rectocele. Poor girl. Still enjoys playing and being held, but bowel movements are painful due to her minor rectocele.
I think it comes down to a very personal decision. What I have used in the past are the following questions.
Does the animal have quality of life?
Does it enjoy its food?
Does it enjoy walks /going out?
Is it in pain?
Its a difficult decision to make, I had to have a dog euthanised a few weeks ago, but I like to think of it as the last act of love you can perform for you pet...totally unselfishly...thinking of you as you make the decision...; (+ info
Is it possible to do a hysterectomy and fix a rectocele/cystocele under a spinal anesthesia?
General Anesthesia always makes me violently ill, and I'm trying to avoid that and any "sedatives" like Versed/Midazolam for an upcoming operation.
How do I get the Dr to agree to this? Any good suggestions?
Yes, it is possible to fix a rectocele/cystocele during a vaginal hysterectomy. This can also be done under spinal anesthesia. But each physician has his or her own "favorite" anesthesia. If your doctor does not accept to do it under a spinal anesthesia, it would be better for you to find another one. (+ info
How long is recovery from a rectocele repair operation?
I am having the mesh put in, not sure how they do it.
I work in a job standing up all day and have been told will be off work for about 3 months, does anyone know??
According to what I know...
"During the first 4 weeks after the operation, you may have some smelly, sometimes bloody drainage from your vagina."
"After you leave the hospital, avoid all heavy activity such as lifting for the first 6 to 8 weeks. Then follow your provider's recommendations for gradually increasing your activity."
There is no need to retype it because it is so well written on this site: http://www.med.umich.edu/1libr/aha/aha_cysrec_crs.htm
I wish you all the best and a speedy recovery.
Can a general surgeon remove my gallbladder and fix my rectocele/cystocele at the same time?
Or will I need 2 separate surgeons: 1 for my gallbladder and 1 for the prolapse? Can both procedures be done at the same time if I need 2 surgeons?
You'll need two surgeons but you should be able to have both procedures at the same time. Talk to your surgeons. (+ info
Can a cyctocele/rectocele/entrocele be repaired surgically under an Epidural or spinal anesthetic?
I hate General Anesthesia and I refuse to have Versed after the horrible reaction I had to it. (I write on every medical form that I'm highly allergic to versed so they don't give it to me.)
Doctors would you let me have this surgery like this? I don't mind being awake at all. I've had several surgeries awake under localized/regional anesthesia.
Absolutely. (+ info
Rectocele - What are the consequences of not having it repaired? Can it get worse?
Rectocele. If you have one and you can deal with it on a day to day basis can you just ignore getting it operated on? I understand the surgery is painful with a long recovery period. What I want to know is - 10 or 20 years down the road will I needs the surgery anyway? And will the surgery be worse for having waited? (I'm in my 50's now.)
I've done all the google/yahoo/msn searches already. I'm looking for personal experiences.
You have 8 options to find out all about Rectocele. I doubt it if anyone can tell you what or how you will feel in 20 years, this is more prophecy than medicine lol. I do wish you a speedy recovery though.

Im suffering big time with rectocele prolapse and my bvladder prolapsed i got kidney condition?
The hiospital are messing me about and im fed up with feeling unwell and in pain ive three kids to run around after what would you do if hospital were messing you around and you were suffering.
Well, I like you, have prolapses of the bowel and bladder and a cyst. I have been waiting eight weeks just for the scan. One thing I suggest you do, is just go into the emergency dept of your local hospital with severe abdominal pain, that way you are there and they will have to take some action! I totally sympathise with your situation. (+ info
Is a hysterectomy absolutely necessary in order to repair a rectocele/prolapse problem?
you hear so much about "unnesisary" hysterectomies being done. I don't have any bleeding issues or endometriosis or pain....not going thru menopause either. I'm being told that it's being removed due to it being "enlarged."
A lot of the decision in this matter may come down to exactly how enlarged your uterus is. Anything that's going to contribute to the downward gravity issues can exaserbate (gosh I hope I spelled that right) issues involving pelvic prolapse issues.
