I wish I had an answer for you but I don't know enough about that yet.
I too, had the Sitz Marker study. All 24 of mine were retained in my colon as well. 5 in the sigmoid colon and 19 in the decending colon. Do you (or anyone else) know what this means?
I was having chronic diarrhea w/blood and mucus but for the last few months very minimal BM's with mucus. I really don't know what all this means. Any information anyone can share would be most helpful.
Leslie - good luck with whatever approach you agree to. I hope you find resolution and begin feeling better.
