Rectocele

I have both rectocele and cystocele and went to a women's physical therapist as my gyno doctor prescribed. I worked with the PT for about 5 months. I liked the help but even though I have been doing the prescribed exercises for about 8 months I still have the vaginal protrusion problem every day. Have other women on this site had surgery to correct this? I have seen the notices on TV regarding a class-action lawsuit being filed regarding problems with the mesh sling used in these types of surgeries. Are there other repair alternatives out there?

At the age of 49, I had surgery for cystocele & rectocele. It worked for many years. I am now 82 and the rectocele has returned. Gyno I see never said anything about surgery, exercises, didn’t seem to be too concerned. However, I suffer with constipation and seem to live on stool softeners and prunes. It is an on going issue. I have increased my fluids. Noting seems to help. I am lost. No one seems to be concerned.
