What symptoms does Internal Rectal Prolapse cause?

In some cases the internal prolapse does not cause any symptoms at all. Unlike an external rectal prolapse where part of the bowel actually comes out there is nothing external to see or feel. The common symptoms are those of the obstructed defaecation syndrome.

These include the desire to strain excessively, the feeling of incomplete evacuation, fruitless visits to the lavatory.
Patients may also be aware of a pressure sensation within their back passage.

At my first consultation I also met with Mandy Smart, Mr Radley’s nurse. She was equally as reassuring and kind. ”
