A rectal prolapse is when portion of your rectum protrudes (sticks out) via your anus. Your anus (back passage) is where your rectum unseals onto your skin. A rectal prolapse can be uncomfortable and embarrassing and may affect your daily life. It’s important to see your GP as soon as you notice any signs or symptoms. You can usually treat a rectal prolapse with lifestyle changes or surgery. However, these days, most people dither away from undergoing any surgery. Instead, they prefer to opt for herbal medicines meant to cure this ailment quicker and effectively.
What are the risks/complications that may occur after surgery?
As with any operation, anesthesia complications, bleeding and septicity are always the hazards. Other risks and complications from operations to repair prolapse include:
- Lack of healing where the two ends of bowel rewire. (This can occur in a surgery in which a section of the bowel is removed and the two ends of the remaining bowel are rejoined.)
- Intra-abdominal or rectal bleeding
- Urinary retention (incapability to pass urine)
- Medical impediments of surgery: heart attack, pneumonia, deep venous thrombosis (blood clots)
- Return of rectal prolapse
- Deteriorating or development fecal incontinence
- Deteriorating or development of constipation
- After operation, constipation and straining should be evaded. Fiber, fluids, stool softeners and mild laxatives can be used.
