So this morning was a little rough. I woke up and noticed my pants were wet and some of it had seeped thru onto the pad I have but it even seeped thru the pad onto my bed! :-(
How long does this anal leaking go on for? What can I do to help with it? Are there specific liners I should wear?

Also, starting this morning I have very uncomfortable feeling in my rectal/anal muscle area (lower back). Kinda feels like I have to go to the bathroom but not really ... I'm guessing this is normal but how long does this last for????

Good things .... I can stand up and sit down with minimal pain from my incisions now ... which is a major plus!!! :-)

Hope all is well with everyone ....

This is normal and will last until you have your reversal. Since you probably have a loop ileo you will probably also have a bowel movement before your next surgery. This too is normal so don't get excited if it happens!

Until the reversal? Gosh ... that's gonna be at least another couple of months :(
So are there liners or any way of me knowing when I need to have a "regular" bowel movement? Or does it just happen?

It is quite normal since the muscles are relaxed during sleep, the mucuos tends to leak through the rectum. I was told by my GI surgeon that the mucous formation in the rectum/J pouch is a healthy sign to show that all is well inside and the system is working. Do not worry too much.

In so far as pain is concerned, a little pain may not be an issue, but if the pain is unbearable, you must immediately get in touch with your ET or GI surgeon.
Keep us posted.

Any suggestions as far as what to do for the leaking? Are there liners or something I can buy?

I don't think I had the mucous leakage till my take down surgery. It was only in the intial one month post op 1st stage that I used to have lot of mucous. Normally I used to sit on the pot and clear the bowel with TP. Make it a point to go to wash room before you sleep. So far as liners are concerned, you may use any of the girlie sanitary pads.

That's great. Congratulations. Well in India the sex determination test is banned because lots of people used to use this for female foeticide and that is why sex ratio male/female had gone haywire. So now nobody can go for this test, even though people are still doing it surrpetiously.

Take care and keep me informed. Well till the time baby comes, you may use the diappers which the baby is supposed to use. What do you say. Even your wife would get used to changing nappies. Ha ha . I hope I am not offending you.
