Have you had patients with a prolapsed rectum?

  1. I just found out that I have a prolapsed rectum, and I need surgery. Can anyone tell me what the aftercare is like? Is there a lot of pain after the operation? How long is the hospital stay? What does the nursing care involve? Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I am quite nervous regarding the amt. of pain right after surgery.

    Check out emedicine.com You have to sign up but it's free and has lots of treatment/outcome info on "rectal prolapse". It's too long for me to post here.
    Good luck. I hope you feel better soon!
