TMI warning!!!!! I have a question for all those who have had resection. Mine was in the second half of my colon. I've noticed quite a bit lately no matter how much I wipe and with what that I always seem to have s*^t a couple of hours later. Even after I take a shower and scrub myself back there. I have discovered that is what is causing my itchy butt. Is it possible that because of the resection and removal of my sigmoid colon that I don't have as much control as before? I'm thinking that I'm not able to totally release all my poop and some is left behind and comes out an hour or two later. I'm also thinking that is why my gas is sometimes sooooooo soooooooo stinky. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
