Karen - 46 yrs old
1997: Diagnosed IBS
2003: Pelvic floor repair surgery
2006: STARR surgery for mucosal prolapse/Obstructive Defaecation Syndrome. Diagnosed with slow transit.
2007: No difference. Had MRI scan showing a partial volvulus
2007: Had 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.
If they had diagnosed me properly in the first place - i probably wouldnt have needed all of the above surgeries - makes me mad :( Typical ..
Scared as told it is 50/50 i could be incontinent and need a bag.... However i am on waiting list for a tc - wont be til new year now.
