I few years ago I got a hysterectomy, ovaries not removed . Lately I have a problem where I can feel stool thought a vaginal wall. And in order to move my bowel complete I have to push with my fingers where I feel the stool in order to release. It' become very uncomfortable and at times I feel a bit of abdominal pain/discomfort. What could have happen to be me.

My bowels have been abnormal since my hysterectomy. I tend to be either constipated or have to make a "mad dash" for the bathroom. Thankfully, I don't have to push the stool out (not yet anyway)! There's a forum on Hystersisters called "Pelvic Floor and Bladder Issues" that has many posts about bowel and bladder problems including rectocele, fistula, cystocele, incontinence, physical therapy, surgery. Hope you find the information and support you need.
