glad to hear you are on the mend again - i take it the swelling etc is under control now and your bowel is functioning as it should, albeit several times a day?? Are you in control of your bowels hopestar - a question i ask everyone that has had this op - and can you get out and about ok, or is it too early yet to say??
1997: Diagnosed IBS
2003: Pelvic floor repair surgery
2006: STARR surgery for mucosal prolapse/Obstructive Defaecation Syndrome. Also diagnosed with slow transit
2007: No difference. Had MRI scan showing a partial volvulus
2007: Therefore surgeon recommended a sigmoid resection which resulted in 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). In discomfort/pain most days.
Scared to have TC as told I could become incontinent - but looking to have surgery before end of year hopefully
