Rectal prolapse surgery is typically performed under general anaesthetic. This means that you will be unconscious throughout the procedure.
The type of surgery you have will depend on factors such as the size of your prolapse, your age and overall health, as well as your surgeon’s preferences. There are a number of very successful approaches to this surgery.
There are two main approaches to rectal prolapse surgery: through the abdomen (called rectopexy) or through your perineum (the region between your anus and genitals). Rectopexy can be done either as open surgery or using laparoscopy (keyhole surgery).
Whatever the details of your surgery, the procedure aims to return the prolapsed part of the rectum to its normal position inside the body. They will reposition the prolapse and then strengthen the muscles and tissues that support the rectum to prevent it from prolapsing in the future.
After rectal prolapse surgery, you will need to spend some time in hospital to recover. This could be anything from 24 hours to a week or more, depending on your health and the specifics of your procedure. You may experience some pain or discomfort during this time, but we will provide pain relief medication to manage this. It's important to follow the post-operative instructions given to you by your surgeon to ensure the best possible outcome.
Most patients can return to their normal activities within six weeks of surgery, but it can take several months for the body to fully heal.
If you have any questions or concerns about what to expect during rectal prolapse surgery, our team at Circle Health Group is here to help. We are dedicated to ensuring that you receive the highest quality care before, during, and after your procedure.
