hi 2much, i only go during the night if i have had my oats too early. i have quite wet oats before bed and i feel empty in the morn but it doesnt agree with everyone. i never spend that amount of time on the toilet either, as soon as i feel i need to go, i rush and it comes straight away, no faffing about. lol im glad its like that though as before i could be on the toilet forever, with nothing happening, i take it the tc was not a complete sucess if you are still on senna? good luck hope you get good advice
yeh i know the nhs only too well, they papped me off to loads of different folk for years. Different hospitals etc...... not knowing what was wrong with me, then they diagnosed what i knew all along, severe slow transit, well i knd of guessed that when it takes about 3 weeks to do a poop. lol I was on the waiting list for a year, then the doubt set in, should i should i not, will it work, blah blah blah. But the op was horrific, i suffered a lot of setbacks post op, my surgery was june 29th last year and believe me when i say it is the worst thing i have experienced and i have 4 kids. one labour eas em c-section and then lost 2 litres of blood, It ws a very long recovery. Sometimes thought i wouldnt get through it, But i would do it again knowing what i know now. I was still suffering in july, but along with my meds that i was put on and keeping a diary i was able to see it was foood making me worse. But the meds did help for the adhesions i had. Now i am 6 weeks pregnant and feeling brill. I do so much now its hard to believe i was laid up for a year, but theni think what is a year compared suffering my full life, i am 29 tomo, and i have plenty of healthy good years ahead. Have you tried quite a wet consistency of ready brek? see if that helps you go? i find it my magic food,as even post op i felt constipated, now every morning i am empty its great. "28 years" of pain and i could have tried the wet oats thing. I wish i had tried a food diary though before the op to see if it would have made a difference. good luck you are not alone, i may be better but the c is all i know, still trying to get used to being able to do things. I do still have the odd sore day, but who cares its not evey day
NOW ON WAITING LIST FOR A TOTAL COLECTOMY -
SHOULD BE EARLY 2009 -
Scared as told it is 50/50 i could be incontinent and need a bag....
hiya thank youxxxxxx had a great day. I am glad that some people are getting hope from my story i know that i certainly had none left and was all for giving in.
Its awful trying everything isnt it??? i even tried reiki, done nothing just relaxing, you know the chinese herbalist shops you get in the shopping centres??? went in there explained what was happening, got told what to buy, so i did. £20 for huge green ogre looking pills. They were monsters. OMG i went from being severely consti, to cant stop going, that would have been fine, had it not been the extreme pain and mucous those pills brought.
Its amazing isn't it, you think you know what is wrong, but dont get diagnosed for years, then when you do its what you thought in the first place. I would just like to know why on earth was i like this???? why did my body want to be like that. Thankfully i suppose i dont need to know now, just happy im on the mend. I am sure you will be soon, just keep harassing your doc, and the consultant. Keep phoning, and getting on their nerves.
Haven't seen a post from 2risk for a while, hope she is ok.
