Sub I hope you are feeling a lot better very soon.
I am following yours and everyone's progress who are having surgeries as I intend to go ahead by sep/oct as cant take anymore.
Do you know whether your whole colon was removed? I am so confused with sub and total and why some folk on here are having a 'sub' or 'total' colectomy. its confusing and i want to be better informed really.
all the best to you.x
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' :(
