Can rectal prolapse cause weight loss?

I started losing weight without trying, about the same time that I started having symptoms of rectal prolapse. Can they be related? In 2 months I lost about 9% of my body weight.

It would not seem that rectal prolapse should cause you to lose weight. Have your bowel habits changed?
