I had a mesh put in 2 yrs ago after my pouch twisted 360° for the second time. I don't seem to create enough scar tissue to help hold things in place. The Dr purposely roughed me up inside when he did the surgery to cause more scar tissue so I was quite sore for a while. The good news is the mesh is doing it's job, never bothers me that I can tell. Good luck!

Most people with prolapses seem to be more troubled by an inability to properly empty the pouch than by pain.

I see, that sounds annoying. I doubt laxatives could fix that problem. I wonder what causes that??? I know that constant straining to poop can be a potential factor and heavy lifting. Too bad everything has pros and cons. I even heard some women's vaginas prolapse too. Scary world. 

I did! The surgey was great. My doc said my bowel was twisted up like a square knot and so he corrected the twist and then we sewed my j-pouch to my tail bone area with some mesh. The risk was that my bowel was sneaking behind my pouch and it was cutting off the blood supply to my bowel. The mesh should help prevent that disaster in the future. 

Recovery has been a little rough. I feel like it takes my bowels forever to wake up after surgery and a couple days I overate and got really full/bloated but taking it easy and finally back at work so it's going well. Thanks for asking!
