Need to figure out a way to keep those muscles workin'. Use it or lose it...I watched this happen to my mother over a mental illness that she had. In her mind she couldn't use it. In reality she could and lost it.
I empathize with you on the bowels & movement though. Anytime I do any lengthly walking or stenuous activity such as hand gardening and the like, I bet I stop and go I don't know how many times. Are you sure you are staying hydrated enough?
