I am waiting for surgery to repair a severe rectocele and am experiencing excessive bloating of my stomach which does not change despite several changes of diet.
Can a severe rectocele cause bloating of the stomach?

It could do especially if you suffering from constipation. A rectocele is when a bulge type pocket occurs in the rectum and pushes into the rear vaginal wall. Fecal matter may get stuck in this bulge, resulting in chronic constipation. No amount of fiber eating is going to help much to level this type of constipation. Women will find it extremely difficult to have a bowel movement and are often left with a continual sensation of fullness and the urge to have a bowel movement.
