Just need to find folk out there who had a colectomy done because of SLOW TRANSIT CONSTIPATION, BUT ended up having to have a colostomy bag because of incontinence.
I really need to know the ratio of people who have had successful outcome of t/c as I am scared to have one because i was told 50% of people who have this surgery become incontinent.
Thanks so much
2003: Rectocele/cystocele - Pelvic floor repair surgery;
2006: Mucosal prolapse/Obstructive Defaecation Syndrome (ODS); Slow Transit Constipation - STARR surgery;
2007: Partial volvulus (cause of ODS?) - Sigmoid resection. Result: immediate worsening STC;
2008: Now contemplating colectomy as I need to take up to 30 senna tablets daily for some kind of bowel movement (albeit not 'normal' or all at once) or be in discomfort.
Scared to have TC as told I could become incontinent - can't get my head around the fact I might require a 'bag' :(
