Hi mommy and everyone

I live in Orpington, which is just outside London .... i love all you USA guys!! so does my daughter - she went to Indiana PA uni for about 5 months as an exchange and came back with a bit of an american twang to her vocabulary. lol. turn but the forum is getting a little more diverse...so far 1 english, 1 scottish, and 1 australian.... tongue    There is nothing like this for the UK at all! rolleyes


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
