The term rectum refers to the lowermost 12-15 centimeters of the large intestine. The rectum is positioned just above the anal canal. Usually, the rectum is firmly attached to the pelvis with the support of ligaments and muscles that clasp it in position. If you think you or you kid has a rectal prolapse, you should contact your GP. The finest treatment for you will depend on your age, your overall health and what actually caused the prolapse in the first place. In young kids, particularly those under three, rectal prolapse generally gets better without any particular treatment. Your doctor might show you how to push the prolapse back in securely. If your kid is constipated, your doctor might give you guidance on how to help your kid to have bowel movements more habitually. Make certain that they eat plenty of fruits and veggies, in addition to other high-fibre foods and also drink sufficient water. They should go to the toilet habitually to empty their bowels, but without straining to pass stools. Your doctor might recommend a gentle laxative for them.
