OK this seems a strange thing to discuss and I am only posting this subject here because I can't think of any of my friends I would like to chat to about it, as it is somewhat embarrassing, and I don't have to look at your faces as you read this.

The thing is - as the title implies - I think my butthole is the ugliest thing in the world, and it is only since my injury and having to deal with regular haemorrhoid problems and sitting on the loo for more time than I would ideally like, having to perform manual evac's etc. I am pretty sure that it looked OK, if not good before - though I don't think I spent much time looking at it back then ! Previous healed haemorrhoids have left me with a sort of small hanging skin tag down there and I have this obsession that, with years of performing manual evac's, eventually my insides will fall out of my arse (or rectal prolapse to use the technical term).

Has anybody else noticed anything similar about themselves and does it bother you? I have heard that some people have cosmetic surgery on their 'lower parts' to make them look prettier, but clearly this is not possible for a paraplegic, and in any case I'm not sure I would have it done as there is only me and my husband to see it - and he doesn't spend his time gawping at my anus - thankfully !!

Does anyone know if SCI's are more at risk of rectal and/or vaginal prolapse due to the loss of pelvis floor muscle tone?

I would appreciate all your thoughts on this matter.

i have been a nurse for many years and have seen my share of holes. believe me, they come in all states of ugliness. most have "war scars"...hemorrhoids, excess skin, ect. dont worry, just like faces, there will always be someone with a prettier one and someone with an uglier one.
there is such thing as getting prolapsed rectum..and various other organs if you are a woman.
prolapse can cause problems and lack of muscle tone down there is definately a factor.
believe me, you don't have to have SCI to have a ugly anus. anything is normal. hope that helps

I would say I don't have a brown eye fit for porn movies either but then I may spend more time that most A/B people looking at it. Just normal and age isn't nice to any of us.

A sex / relationship advice radio show I listen to quite often, Loveline, has the host Dr. Drew Pinsky. They get lots of calls about anal sex and such. Dr. Drew tell people that age alone does bad things to that area of the body. He tells people that this rise in anal sex is going to be a booming business for the medical community in many years as people have all the problems of a 70 year old at under 40.

Hi Julie

A female 60 year old T4/5 friend of mine 25 years after injury had several prolapsed rectum (the idea of pushing it back in doesn't sound too brill). She was in Oswestry for a sore when it happened again and they advised her to have a colostomy which she now has.

She finds it a lot easier than before. She changes it regularly (morning and night) but as she can't tell when she is going to expell stuff into her bag she is currently worrying about flying with the bag which could possibly be full and having to have a 2 person lift onto those horrible little aisle chairs. I'm sure she'll get on with it OK or have to buy loads of perfume in duty free.

So I guess prolapses do occur as we get older after injury.

Dear Dee

Your words gave me the best laugh I've had for ages and I mean this in a very positive way. I have 2 skin tags that I call my Emmarhoids and since the 1 was joined by another I have begun to wonder if eventually, I'll end up with a bunch of grapes around my arse - and I've used this analogy when I've moaned to my sympathetic Doctor. Your article made me laugh for the simple reason it was nice to know that you feel and have the same views about your b-hind as I do, and it is not vain, it is very normal to question where it will eventually lead.

At least now I know it's not just me in this situation.

It rarely sees the light of day
And yet it has a tan?
It's usually visible during a full moon
Such is the humour of man (and some women)
You ask is it ugly?
What else can I say
It's functional (not controllable :P )
And helps us pass away
All the stuff we'd rather not feel
Thank goodness for the rubber glove
A frequent term of much abuse
And occasionally one of love.

So arsehole, rectum, anus,
Rosebud, little brown eye
Rarely seen but often heard
Followed by a hue and cry (or do I mean; a pooh and sigh?)
Without you, we'd be full of it
Even more so than we are
After what has passed through you
Any wonder you bear a scar?
Everybody has one
Just like excuses, it's true!
Beauty's in the eye of the beholder
So? Here's looking at YOU!
:H2kOther (26):

I hope this helps?

Paul

I have the same problem. It got worse after being in bed for 7 weeks after a flap surgery. I saw a surgeon this week. He says due to lack of muscles, the best option is a colostomy, which I am not ready to do. He also talked about a Delorme procedure to remove the skin hanging out, but t will likely happen again. It appears to be a small procedure. I am considering this, as I get tired of the seepage and less control of the stools. I am looking for other altrernative or opinions of those that have this problem.

Hi Greg, I had a Delormes procedure carried out about 2.5 years ago and it's been a big help - before that I was experianced leakage every day and a my bowel was prolapsed off and on all day.(not a lot but it was noticeable). The leakage was the big problem though as I was always leaving damp patch's :( .

Paraplegic about 18 months at the time of the procedure and now nice and dry. :)

Your the first I have heard from that has had it done. The only reason I hesitate, the doctor talked about it probably would not hold. I assume it is due to lack of muscle. I have been paraplegic for 34 years. I cannot wear pads or anything, due to the risk of creating sores. I will have to talk further with the docs. Thanks for the info.

Hi Greg, that should have read "paraplegic for 18 years when I had the procedure".

I was in the hospital for 3 days and I then had to go in for a check once a week to make sure that the stitches were in place and healing. Plenty of lactulose and Fibragel for about a month and then back to normal. Op was carried out at the Edinburgh Western General by Miss Collie.

2.5 years later and still no leakage.

I spoke with the doctor, he now says he can do a PPH surgery. He doesn't think I need the delorme. The PPH is an out patient procedure. This sounds much better.

I don't have a prolapse yet. But i do have a streched anus and it doesn't really give me any problems unless I have the runs. Which I haven't had since itdecied itdidn't want too close tightly. When I'm regular it tightens up but it still scares me. This is from 18 years of manual evac. and manly I do it because nothing else worked. I have a bad family history of having bad guts but this is a new one too me. any of the ideas above I've looked at but is there anything else a guy can do too tighten things up? It makes going out alittle less fun and I don't think it's much use too me unless I wanted to slide into gay porn and I don't think I could get paid enough for that one!

wow, old topic, but funny to read through, no offense! :yikes:

All I can say is that I am buggered ( well not literally! loL but my bum prob looks that way!)...due to having two babies who were technically too big for my frame, paralysis and a connective tissue disorder which not only causes multiple dislocations - it affects everywhere there is connective tissue!!!

At least we are not alone..huh....:)

Getting back to the original post, if you really want a nicer looking arse there's a new thing here that's catching on called 'BUTT BLEACHING'. All the porn/movie stars, and regular folk venturing the 3rd hole are getting it done!!!

Isn't that a kick in the ass?? :yikes:
