rectocele repair

I am 10 weeks post-op.  Rectocele only.  Stitches only no mesh.  Doc checked at 8 weeks and said i was healing nicely.  Bladder and uterus well supported.  My only problem is i have pressure back at the rectum area and sometimes it feels like it moves into the vagina area.  It seems to go back and forth.  Sometimes the pressure gets started when i sit and doesn/t go away.  Sometimes it helps to pass gas.  

Why am i having trouble?  Am i trapping gas and it just sits there?  Sometimes i feel like i have to lay down to get the gas to come out.  Could that muscle levitor ani be to tight?  I am trying hot baths and message my butt.  Trying ice too.  Should i try a muscle relaxer??   Something over the counter to see if it works????

Am i doing this to myself???

Please post this to the dr side of forum, since we have talked about the majority of this and I am  unable to provide the answers you need, give the urogyn's on the dr side of forum a shot. I can not transfer your posts you need to post on that side directly.
I'm hopeful they will be able to give you more beneficial info that I was.

It is difficult to say what the exact cause of your complaint.  It has been a relatively short time since your surgery & your symptoms may improve with time.  Adequate hydration, anti gas agents, stool softeners may be helpful. Should your problems presist I would be suspicious that a "high rectocele" may be present.  This should be evident on exam in most cases.

Hi Sherrie, I have not posted since March of this year and was hoping things were going to get better and they have to a certain degree, but just when I think they are I have another UTI or inflamation (inflammation) in the bladder I am constantly on antibiotics for maintenance.  You said you would help me to find a urogynecologist in my area of San Diego, CA, hope you know of someone.
Thanks for all your help.

So sorry to hear of continuing flags, I'm going to dig for urogyn right now and send you a PM with details.
