I called the Cleveland Clinic again... said they just got my results on Monday. The doctor hasn't reviewed my reports then. I've been out of town on business so I haven't had time to follow up. I'll give them a call again to see where we stand tomorrow.
I DID hear back from my surgeon locally and they are still waiting for my insurance to approve Biofeedback. Apparently it requires excessive amount of paperwork. Good thing I don't have to be the one doing all that.. I just have to sit on the sidelines and wonder when I'll get the call.
It was exciting - today I drank coffee (2 cups), cranberry juice (mini bottle), cup of apple juice and ate a bunch of watermelon for breakfast. I had a BM mid-morning! I also drank a lot of alcohol last night.. usually a combination of the two will work. However, I'm not getting drunk or going on a juicing diet just to produce a BM.
Nothing like buying enemas on a biz trip.
Thanks for the concern :) Any updates for you? I haven't been reading the threads this week.
