I had this done yesterday.
They told me it would be a week before the results come in. But I have a question for those that have done this test before.
When they have the tube in and they tell you to squeeze your rectum. Just like when you need to move your bowels but are trying to hold it in. The tube is pulling  out while you are squeezing your rectum. If the tube is still pulling out while you're trying to squeeze is that bad? I know I had my rectum clenched as hard as I could. But I could still feel the tube sliding out. I figure they were trying to measure how strong my rectal muscles were. I assume if you can hold the tube in and stop the sliding out your muscles are strong. But I don't know.

Your idea sounds logical Taurus, but I do not know. It would be a good guess this was what they were trying to determine. Rosemary
