Hey guys, quick question.

What is the deal with the butt juice? Just when I think I have it under control it gives me a little surprise while I sleep! What is it? Is it ok to have a lot of it?

Will I have problems after my take down with control? Does the lack of control last forever?

Meds just stopped working so I took the problem out! No more colon and all kinds of excitement!

Is the butt juice you are talking about mucus? If so, that's normal.

I don't know if leaking at night indicates you'll have problems after take down.

This is not uncommon - the bowel naturally produces mucus to lubricate and ease the passage of stool. As there is a lot of manipulation of the anal canal during surgery it is not unusual to have a period of reduced rectal control and such leakage is often simply a symptom of this and normally rectifies itself before the takedown surgery. Leakagepre takedown is often no indicator of control afterwards.

This is normal and is a sign that your tissue is healthy.
