ME, I was diagnosed with colonic inertia back in 2003. I have been dealing with my constipation with hot water bag enemas ever since. The docs at the time, whom I didn't agree with, told me if that relieves my bowel, then to give myself enemas the rest of my life instead of having a TC.
I went to a different doctor this May after I had my daughter...they just repeated the Sitz Marker...have you ever had one? All the rings are hung up in my left colon near the sigmoid. I also have a rectocele...they are in that too and I can feel it. I have pelvic floor problems as well. Just curious to see what your Sitz Marker revealed. Are you going to have a bag?
I saw 2 surgeons back when I was first diagnosed. Both said if they wouldn't do a TC. One said to fix the rectocele and enterocele first, the other said if I can relieve myself with hot water bag enemas then do that for the rest of my life....yeah right....now I am up to 4 to feel relieved. So now I am at Hopkins in MD and they are taking things very slow. I have gastroparesis, so they are trying to get that under control. I am waiting to see what they say about the marker study.
Hopkins doesn't want to do surgery...they would rather try another medicine...I am getting sick of this too. I don't want to diagnose myself, but if that many marker were left, and I can't go on my own, then wouldn't a TC be a possibility? We will see what they say. I will keep you posted.
