i am so pleased for you and that the op was successful. Do you have control of your bowels by the way? and do you need the loo at night?? When you open your bowels is it over and done with quickly and no faffing around sitting for ages?? sorry for questions - i am so concerned. xx
Karen - 46 yrs old
1997: Diagnosed IBS
2003: Pelvic floor repair surgery
2006: STARR surgery for mucosal prolapse/Obstructive Defaecation Syndrome. Diagnosed with slow transit.
2007: No difference. Had MRI scan showing a partial volvulus
2007: Had 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.
If they had diagnosed me properly in the first place - i probably wouldnt have needed all of the above surgeries - makes me mad :( Typical ..
Scared as told it is 50/50 i could be incontinent and need a bag.... However i am on waiting list for a tc - wont be til new year now.
