Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

What are all the symptoms you are suffering ?

Have you been to any doctor so far ?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
problems controlling my bowel movements, not sure whether I need to go to the toilet or pass a motion. The prolapse comes down at this point. I have had medical advise - the prolapse could be sorted by surgery but not advised due to possible complications. I take Senna tablets daily.

Your age and gender ?

Any other medical problem?

I am Mrs.***** age-77 years

I had successful By-pass surgery in 2004, am on relevant medication.

Thanks for the information

The most effective treatment for your problem will be a laparoscopic repair of the prolapse

Unfortunately medicines will not work in this situation

You need to see a laparoscopic GI surgeon as this is a minimally invasive surgery and you can surely be benefited with such procedure
