I guess I too was hoping to be pain free, lol. No, seriously, the pain from surgery isn't too awful, it's the pain I get with my bowel movements. I have been eating a bland diet s far so we will see what happens. I do hope to advance my diet as I do enjoy eating, lol!
Hi Sue, I have not tried Immodium yet. I wasn't sure how early I could introduce it. I was going to ask my surgeon. I only say this because I had to have two flex sigmoisoscopy's before my reversal to dilate my anal
opening in order for things to move through. Now, I am not sure if I am too dilated or if it is supposed to be this way. Thanks for the reminder though!
