I think I likely have a "rectal prolapse". Pretty much this whole thing began during labor with ds2 (who is currently 32 months old). After labor (he ended up as a c/s - though I had pushing contractions for 5-6 hours and we TRIED very much to have him naturally), I would have a "protrusion" during bowel movements. But, now that protrusion is all the time and it has become more and more annoying (and irritating). I do not have any incontinence, but it is increasingly irritating and, most recently (the last few days) there is occas. blood (not from internally) on the tissue with bm's.
I am fairly sure I'll have to have surgery and that SUCKS. I mean, beyond the thought of being under general anesthesia then I get to the aspect of having to Explain to anyone at all about it and that is awful. Seriously, I will have to ask my parents (who are awesome, but still....) to help me and DH out so I say, what "Uh, mom, can you and dad help us out, I have to have surgery cuz my ass is falling out" - ok, maybe not say that, but you get the idea. It SUCKS. And, that is people close to me...I just don't have to have to explain to friends and/or acquaintances about what/why I would have had surgery!!! Yes, I do realize that it is nothing I did and that it's not my fault and that it should not be that embarrassing....but IT IS!
I am wondering if anyone has had anything similar? What did you have to do? What did you say to anyone???
