HI mommy - Glad you are doing well so far.
I have some questions - are you glad you had the operation? is having bm more a normal process now? Do you feel much better or do you have pain and bloating?
1997: Diagnosed IBS
2003: Rectocele/cystocele - Pelvic floor repair surgery;
2006: Mucosal prolapse/Obstructive Defaecation Syndrome/Slow Transit Constipation - STARR surgery;
2007: Partial volvulus (cause of ODS?) - Sigmoid resection. Result: immediate colonic inertia;
2008: Now contemplating colectomy as I need to take up to 30 senna tablets daily for some kind of bowel movement (albeit not 'normal' or all at once). Always in discomfort/pain.
Scared to have TC as told I could become incontinent - can't get my head around the fact I might require a 'bag' :(
