So, thought I would drop a post real quick to update. After 2-months of waiting for a certain Biofeedback Trained Physical Therapist...I requested someone else. I found a different place which happens to be 5-minutes from my home if that. My first appt. had a lot of explaining & we did get a little time for the actual "Biofeedback-Therapy."

She attached 2-electrodes on each side of the rectum (externally) + 1-on butt cheek to make like a ground...Lol Then she had a handheld device that the electrodes were hooked to, that measured how much my Pelvic insides were all in spasms & extremely tight. Worked with it for a bit where I held it & watched the numbers on it while doing certain exercises. Apparently I will be doing this for approximately 6-months at least.

Thanks for letting me share on this thread.
Your Healingwell Friend,

Loop ileostomy May 2011, Shoulder Surgery March 2011, Colon tore thru Vaginal Wall & the Colon together with the Bladder fell out of my body thru the vagina (even the colon came out the vagina), Reconstruction Surgery with lots of Mesh to hold everything up (2010), Abdominal Hysterectomy with 1st-Bladder Lift, Benign Tumor removed from head (half of my scalp is a large scar in like a backward "S"...Total of 15-surgeries over the years on various things. Another shoulder surgery on other one in the next couple months, make ileostomy permanent in Sept. or Oct.
