As Tracy told you please join us in "TOTAL COLECTOMY PART 31" I just joined this group at the beginning of January and everyone there has been soooo helpful!
Your symptoms sound almost the same as mine. My sitz marker test showed that I had colonic ineritia (CI). I had surgery on January 7, 2010 and the surgeon attached my small intestine to my rectum. In my opinion I wish I had this surgery sooner. With that being said I had surgery only 4 weeks ago. I have had some pain to go through that has been very scary and I am still trying to figure all of it out. At least I am going to the bathroom!
I wasn't able to have all of the testing that I think I should of had done before having this surgery because my insurance ended on Jan. 29th. By the time I found the group of laides in "TOTAL COLECTOMY PART 31" my surgery was already scheduled and if I didn't have it done then I wouldn't have had any health insurance coverage. They pointed out to me that all tests relating to your whole digestive system need to be done prior to this surgery. There are some ladies that have had this surgery and are still struggling with constipation! I do not know of all of these tests, but if you join us at "TOTAL COLECTOMY PART 31" there are many woman who will be glad to help you!
I hope you join us!
