i wish you good luck in your future surgery - keep us posted on how it goes. i am hoping for the same surgery by the end of the year - things take a lot longer in the UK.
My constipation become 100% worse after a sigmoid resection for a slight twist of bowel which no one can understand why. all the best . x
1997: Diagnosed IBS
2003: Pelvic floor repair surgery
2006: STARR surgery for mucosal prolapse/Obstructive Defaecation Syndrome. Also diagnosed with slow transit
2007: No difference. Had MRI scan showing a partial volvulus
2007: Therefore surgeon recommended a sigmoid resection which resulted in 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). In discomfort/pain most days.
Scared to have TC as told I could become incontinent - but looking to have surgery before end of year hopefully
