I had a rectal prolapse along with low back pain after being rear-ended. The colorectal surgeon said surgery could possibly help with back pain. I left the hospital with an infection, packed it for six weeks and had to have a hernia repair. The surgeon used mesh to connect the rectum to the colon - he cut a hole in the side of the rectum to connect; capping off the area he cut. Never have I had gastro pain like this. I'm told by three other surgeons that using mesh is not the norm, but removing it is dangerous. I'm in constant pain, possibly because a nerve, sacral plexus, was damaged. Does this make sense to anyone out there?
Thanks so much,
