i started having issues with my tailbone several months ago - never had a problem before. i put it down to sitting all day long at the pc - i work pt from home. i have a special cushion to sit on but it seems to make no diff. though i expect you hardly ever sit down with kids and all.
there is a name for the condition and apparently it can come and then suddenly go just like that.
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
Now 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!!!
NOW ON WAITING LIST FOR A TOTAL COLECTOMY -
COULD BE NOVEMBER 08 AAAAAHHHHHHH
Scared as told it is 50/50 i could be incontinent and need a bag :(
