5Even his innards were bruised

6What is rectal prolapse?
Rectal prolapse is a condition in which the last part of the large intestine slips out of the anus because of losing its attachment or grip inside the body. It telescopes out of the body through the anus turning it inside out.
It is uncomfortable but it does not pose an emergency problem but it does affect a person’s quality of life and can be embarrassing because of the failure to control leaky stools.
7A rare occurrence
Prolapsed rectum affects just 2.5 out of 100, 000 people yearly and is mostly seen in adults both men and women. However, women beyond the age of 50 are at increased risk of such a condition six time s more than men. Such patients facing the condition have also related conditions of autism, psychiatric problems and development delay that require them to take a lot of medication.
8How can it be treated?
The only way to remedy the condition is surgery. There are two types of surgery in the prolapsed rectum. One is from the abdomen and the other is through the anus. Surgeons feel that given the health of the patient and taking in account several factors such as age and extent of the condition, abdominal surgery is the most preferred way to ensure permanent repair of the problem.
