When she first started therapy they discovered some muscle dysynergia....basically when I get the urge to 'go" my rectum and abdominals both contract and my internal and external sphincter will not relax. My surgeon is concerned I my have the inability to relax my rectim, but we are trying therapy for six months. I think the therapy is beneficial. I take milk of mag once to twice dily just a small dose and I do ok. I had therapy today and after therapy for a day or two I feel a difference, but then my rectum tightens back up (according to therapist). I feel a pressure, but all I can get out (without laxative) is stringy thin nothings. I am trying this and just holding my breath that everything works out. My surgeon said the next step would be botox injections, but insurance does not cover thiese treatments.
I think it is good to try. Results for most are about 50/50. My surgery did wonders, dont get me wrong, but this whole process has just been frustrating. I am so happy to have rid of my unfunctioning colon, but now I just want to get through this next hurdle. I have had so many complications I am just sick of all the drs and appointments and sick of getting my butt played with :( Sorry to rant just having a day.
Question for all though.....do any of you have undigested food coming out. I feel like my body is not breaking down food properly?
Hope all is well
