I have a permanent ileo and had my rectum removed--all of that was done in March of this year. I had a blockage/ileo revision in June. Just in the last maybe 2 weeks I've been feeling the "I have to poop" feeling. It's so weird! Is that bad? Does it mean something's wrong? It really feels like pressure and then I automatically think "where's a bathroom?" and then realize that's silly. I'm not sure if I should worry about it...
