Hang in there Tinckled! Just think you are meeting with a surgeon soon! I had a rough week you know, since I had to repeat the transit study.
Day 1 (Monday)-markers just entered colon-swallowed pill Sunday morning
Day 3 (Wednesday)-markers from ascending colon to transverse
Day 5 (Friday)-hardly no movement, markers pretty stayed in same spot,all still in there
Was suprised on Thursday afternoon during test, had tiny movement, but just a bird dropping, nothing to be happy about; I just can't push out stool without a numerous laxatives!
Friday I got off of work early to start cleaning myself out after not going for a week and half. Nothing Saturday morning, and felt like I wasn't going to do anything, so more laxatives and finally got movement yesterday afternoon. Still feel like there some stool in there, but I got the impaction out for now. I am ready to feel better, too!
However, my new surgeon is really taking care of me. A couple hours after my last pic on Friday morning, the nurse called me, and I have my small bowel study on Thursday, 4/28 (same day as your appt) to make sure it is okay. Then, she is working on getting my defecography and another appt. with him later.
I know more surgery is coming for me to remove the rest of my colon, but it is scary. However, I am ready to eat proper, not have indigestion, nausous, and feel weak a lot. Like I said hang in there, which I know is hard to do, I feel the same way, and I really hope this surgeon you meet with is wonderful!
