Hi. From past few days I am getting an uncomfortable feeling while sitting. Researched about it and I can say it is Rectal mucosal prolapse. I am too shy of a person to go to doc for this. Need advice on remedies or medications for it.

23Age 23 Male, Partial rectal prolapse since 6 years. Diagnosed by 3 doctors. All suggest different surgery. 1. Wire wind around anus. 2. Rubber band.(i couldn't understand) 3. MIPS (Minimal invasive. Surgery) stapling of rectal wall. I can't understand what to go for. I have fear of recurrence of the problem even after surgery as it happens in rectal surgeries. Please suggest a permanent or if not so the most appropriate method. Pls help me. I am as living in a hell due to this problem.* colonoscopy was normal * no bleeding in motion * no piles or such as I have been diagnosed .Haven't undergone any surgery yet. This problem happened to me because of constipation and exerting pressure while defecating. However now I do not constipation at all. No current medications, but I took some ayurvedic medicine, and some allopathic medicines prescribed by gastroenterologist but to no relief. One I remember was fybogel, other was a tablet for gas as I had seen on net.
Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy
What is a total laparoscopic hysterectomy?
Is the removal of the uterus and cervix through four small (1/2 Abdominal incisions. Removal of the ovaries and tubes depends on the patient).
Why is this surgery used?
To treat disease of the uterus
• Infection in the ovaries or tubes
• Pelvic pain
• Overgrowth of tissue in the lining of the uterus
• Abnormal vaginal bleeding
How do I prepare for surgery?
The lab work for your surgery must be done at least 3 days beforesurgery. Some medications need to be stopped before the surgery. Smoking can affect your surgery and recovery. Smokers may have difficulty breathing during the surgery and tend to heal more slowly after surgery. If you are a smoker, it is best to quit 6-8 weeks before surgery. You will be told at your pre-op visit whether you will need a bowel prepfor your surgery and if you do, what type you will use. The prep to clean your bowel will have to be completed the night before your surgery.
• You will need to shower at home before surgery.
• Do not wear makeup, nail polish, lotion, deodorant, or antiperspirant on the day of surgery.
• Remove all body piercings and acrylic nails.
Most women recover and are back to most activities in 4-6 weeks. Youmay need a family member or a friend to help with your day-to-day activities for a few days after surgery.
What can I expect during the surgery?
Once in the operating room, you will receive general anesthesia before the surgery to keep you from feeling pain. A tube to help you breathe will be placed in your throat. Another tube will be placed in your stomach to remove any gas or other contents to reduce the likelihood of injury during the surgery. The tube is usually removed before you wake up. A catheter will be inserted into your bladder to drain urine and to monitor the amount of urine coming out during surgery. Compression stockings will be placed on your legs to prevent blood clots in your legs and lungs during surgery. After you are asleep the laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen and carbon dioxide gas is blown into the abdomen to inflate the belly wall away from the internal organs. After you are asleep the doctor will remove the uterus, cervix, and possibly the ovaries and tubes through the 4 small abdominal incisions.
What are possible risks from this surgery?
Although there can be problems that result from surgery, we work very hard to make sure it is as safe as possible. However, problems can occur, even when things go as planned. You should be aware of these possible problems, how often they happen, and what will be done to correct them.
Possible risks during surgery include:
Bleeding: If there is excessive bleeding, you will receive a blood transfusion. Conversion to an open surgery requiring an up and down or Bikini incision: If a bigger open incision is needed during your surgery, you may need to stay in the hospital for one or two nights.
• Damage to the bladder, ureters (the tubes that drain the kidneys into the bladder), and to the bowel: Damage occurs in less than 1% of surgeries. If there is damage to the bladder, urete rs, or to the bowel they will be repaired while you are in surgery.
• Death: All surgeries have a risk of death. Some surgeries have a higher risk than others. Possible risks that can occur days to weeks after surgery:
• Hernia:Weakness in the muscle at the incision that causes a lump under the skin.
• Incision opens: The abdominal or vaginal incision.
•Scar tissue: Tissue thicker than normal skin forms at the site of surgery
What happens after the surgery?
• You will be taken to the recovery room and monitored for a short time before going to the observation unit.
• Depending on the length of your surgery, you may not be able to eat or drink anything until the next morning or you will be started on a liquid diet. When you are feeling better you may return to a regular diet.
• You may have a scratchy or sore throat from the tube used for youranesthesia.
• You will be given medications for pain and nausea if needed.
Have the tube in your bladder removed in recovery room.
Have the compression stockings on your legs to improve circulation.
Be restarted on your routine medications.
Be given a small plastic device at your bedside to help expand your lungs after surgery.
Start walking as soon as possible after the surgery to help healingand recovery.
Stay in the hospital for 24 hours.
When will I go home after surgery?
Most women spend one night in the hospital and are ready to go home around noon -time the day after surgery. You should plan for someone to be at the hospital by noon to drive you home.
At home after surgery : If you use a bowel prep before surgery, it is common not to have a bowel movement for several days.
Call your doctor right away if you:
• develop a fever over 100.4°F (38°C)
• start bleeding like a menstrual period or (and) are changing a pad every hour
• have severe pain in your abdomen or pelvis that the pain medication is not helping
• have heavy vaginal discharge with a bad odor
• have nausea and vomiting
• have chest pain or difficulty breathing
• leak fluid or blood from the incision or if the incision opens
• develop swelling, redness, or pain in your legs develop a rash
• have pain with urination
• Your in cision will be closed with dissolvable stitches.
• Spotting is normal. Discharge will change to a brownish color followed by yellow cream color that will continue for up to four to eight weeks. It is common for the brownish discharge to have a slight odor because it is old blood. Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
You will continue with your regular diet.
• Pain: Medication for pain will be prescribed for you after surgery. Do not take it more frequently than instructed.
• Stool softener: Narcotic pain medications may cause constipation. A stool softener may be needed while taking these medications.
• Nausea: Anti -nausea medication is not typically prescribed.
• Energy level: It is normal to have a decreased energy level after surgery. During the first week at home, you should minimize any strenuous activity. Once you settle into a normal routine at home, you will slowly begin to feel better. Walking around the house and taking short walks outside can help you get back to your normal energy level more quickly.
• Showers: Showers are allowed within 24 hours after your surgery.
• Climbing: Climbing stairs is permitted, but you may require some assistance when you first return home.
• Lifting: For 4-6 weeks after your surgery you should not lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk. This includes pushing objects such as a vacuum cleaner and vigorous exercise.
• Driving: The reason you are asked not to drive after surgery is because you may be prescribed pain medications. Even after you stop taking pain medication; driving is restricted because you may not be able to make sudden movements due to discomforts from surgery.
• Exercise: Exercise is important for a healthy lifestyle. You may begin normal physical activity within hours of surgery. Start with short walks and gradually increase the distance a nd length of time that you walk. To allow your body time to heal, you should not return to a more difficult exercise routine for 4 -6 weeks after your surgery. Please talk to your doctor about when you can start exercising again.
• Intercourse: No sexual activity for 8 weeks after surgery.
• Work: Most patients ca n return to work between 4 -6 weeks after surgery.
Especially common in children, but not entirely impossible in adults, Atopic Dermatitis is a type of eczema, a chronic condition that causes intensive itching and red rashes in and around areas of dry and sensitive skin. Atopic dermatitis has a tendency to flare and then subside periodically and is often accompanied by hay fever or asthma or other allergies. In more serious cases, clear, fluid-filled blisters are also formed.
Signs and symptoms normally associated with atopic dermatitis may include:
- Itching, which may be severe at nocturnal periods of the day
- Dry or cracked, scaly skin
- Reddish brown patches in almost any area of the body
- Swollen and sensitive skin after scratching
- Small, raised blisters which may leak when scratched
The exact causes of atopic dermatitis are unknown. It can, however, be related to any of the following factors:
- Dry and irritable skin
- Immune system dysfunction
- Gene variations which affect the skin’s barrier function
- Action of bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus, on the sensitive areas of skin
- Environmental conditions
If you have Atopic Dermatitis, you are likely to be troubled by the following complications:
- Chronic, itchy skin
- Increased risk of acquiring other skin diseases and viruses, such as the herpes simplex virus
- Asthma and hay fever
- Eye problems such as blepharitis and conjunctivitis
- Allergic contact dermatitis
- Sleep disorders
- Irritant hand dermatitis
- Behavioral problems such as attention deficit or hyperactivity disorders
Treatment and drugs:
If the problem still persists even after regular moisturising and other self-care steps, you may have to take medications and prescribe to certain drugs such as:
- Anti-itching and anti-inflammatory creams
- Anti-itching oral drugs
- Anti-inflammatory oral or injected drugs
- Calcineurin inhibitors that repair the skin
- Drugs to fight infection
- Wet dressings therapy
- Light therapy
- Stress treatment therapy
