hello, I have had a rectocele, cystocele and tvt sling repair 5 weeks ago. I went to a very reputable hospital and I feel comfortable with the doctor that did the surgery, however the rectocele is not gone. It bothers me much more before and after bowel movemtents then it seems to settle down. The doctor examined me and said that the rectocele is still there but not as bad as it was and that I shouldn't have as much trouble with it (it was a stage 2, so now it's that or less). The doctors office is 1 1/2 hours away so I can't just run up there all the time and I do not go to my local gynecologist because of the original misdiagnosis. I am however in the process of looking for a local gynecologist. When I mentioned pelvic exercisers as a way to help and strenghten vagina to prevent furthur problems, the surgical doctor said that these machines are not helpful and are a scam. He said all that they do is strenghten your inner thighs. I was a little puzzled but when I came home and did more research online, I ran across an exerciser that is held between the iner thighs and I realized that this must be the one he was talking about. I mean common sense alone can tell you that the idea behind the kegelmaster is one that will very probably work to strenghten these very important muscles. I have already purchased the Kegelmaster about two years ago but I did not use it regularly. I am 43 years old and I have had 3 children (vaginal births) and after my third one I realized that there was a lot of looseness in my vaginal area. My husband noticed too. Anyway, I eventually came down with pelvic prolapse (bladder and rectum)and I had the surgery to correct them as I said 5 weeks ago. I was wondering if I started to use the kegelmaster now, if you think that in your opinion it would strenghten my muscles enough to lift the rectocele at least to a point that it will no longer bother me? Please let me know what you think. As you could imagine it is a very upsetting feeling to know that the original surgery did not totally fix the problem and that the surgery may have to be redone at some point in time. Thank you.
