Is it IBS or POP?

As a woman who has had surgery for pelvic organ prolapse and also suffered for probably 15+ years with IBS, I have to wonder how much of the constipation prior to my surgery for POP was from the IBS and how much of it was from POP. If there's anyone out there who has had this combination of conditions, I'd love to get feedback from you!

I was born with IBS-C myself, so I suspect that it's at least half and half in your case.

I just told this to someone else....

You might also suspect that you are producing too much estrogen; which can promote constipation.
