i really feel for you - dont you wonder if many health problems come back to how are bowels are working????
I wish you well in your surgery next week - i havent had it yet, but many on here have.
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
