Thank you everyone for your honest replies! However, I wish I could say it makes me feel better but it doesn't. Knowing that it's not uncommon for CD patients to poop their pants isn't a very comforting feeling :( It just blows my mind that we all have to deal with this disease. In another life there must be something great waiting for us! Dealing with the pain, fatigue, countless tests, doctors appointments, and shear humiliation is something that none of us should have to endure. However, I must say that since my resection a lot of my problems have been alleviated......now I need to work on developing some "butt muscles" to hold in the poo.......lol
