With only 25 cm of colon left after a resection at the TI that went badly, I usually do 6-7--frequently more. My GI says this is “fair”. When the count is more, the likelihood of anal irritation increases. (I take 3 Colestipol.) By lying down I can sometimes pass only flatus thus postponing and reducing the number.
Anybody else use recumbent flatulence to reduce the number of bms?
