xtreme and shaz -
Thanks for the encouragement - i did have some anal testing done, and all was ok - just the transit study. i have a bit of incontinence at times (about
once a month) plus urgency when i need to go (huh but hardly much) as i have to take such large quantities of senna or i dont go at all. Lately things are much worse.
Shaz, I am talking about
the surgery where the whole large bowel is removed only, and the small bowel connected to the rectum - leaving the rectum intact - as i have slow transit and not any disease of the bowel.
Thanks so much. keep the posts and poll coming!
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' :(
