I am so glad you are ok ub - your smalll bowel was all twisted around? is that usual?
i saw a hypnotherapist today (she's actually an anaesthatist at the hospital)who I was referred to by my consultant. She will try to help me manage my symptoms. She asked me why i thought removing my colon would help me!??? mmmm. doesnt give me much faith at all. thanks for reply. hope you continue to do well - keep us posted.
1997: Diagnosed IBS
2003: Rectocele/cystocele - Pelvic floor repair surgery;
2006: Mucosal prolapse/Obstructive Defaecation Syndrome/Slow Transit Constipation - STARR surgery;
2007: Partial volvulus (cause of ODS?) - Sigmoid resection. Result: immediate colonic inertia;
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). Always in discomfort/pain.
Scared to have TC as told I could become incontinent - can't get my head around the fact I might require a 'bag' :(
