Symptoms of enterocele and sigmoidocele

Many women may notice a bulge in their vagina. They may also notice dragging or a feeling of pressure particularly towards the end of the day or if they have been on their feet for a few hours.

As the bulge gets bigger sometimes it can be more difficult to completely empty their bowels. This is because the bulge presses on the front of the rectum. Sometimes the bulging gives the sensations that there is still more bowel movement to pass even though the lower bowel is empty.

What our patients think...
The first week after the operation was a very trying time for me and psychologically a very difficult transition having a stoma bag fitted. However a trying time made a lot easier thanks to the care and support offered by Mr Radley and Mandy and I know that thanks to Mr Radley’s surgical skills I have not been in any pain since my operation. ”
