Hello! I am just going to use this thread to organize my tests results.
Colonoscopy in March 2006:
4mm Polyp removed, mild Melanosis and a long redundant Colon.
Sitzmarker in April 2011:
I got the results of my sitzmarker. I took one capsule days 1-3. On day 4 and 7 I had x rays. My results are confusing. On day 4, every single one of the markers were in the right colon,mostly near the bottom. On day 7, 12 were in the right colon, 1 in the transverse, 11 in the left colon and 37 in the distal sigmoid and rectum. I was diagnosed with Colonic Inertia. I was then told I would have a Defocography done and was scheduled for an appointment with a Colorectal Surgeon.
Defecography in April 2011:
The Defecography was rough. The prep didn't work (surprise surprise). When I arrived, I had to drink two 12oz bottles of Barium . I managed to get it down. I did the test and the radiologist explained that I had a small Rectocele and moderate sized Enterocele but that he did not believe that it was effecting my constipation. He said my motility appeared to be the large issue. Other than that, he didn't not see Anismus or any other pelvic floor dysfunction. YIPPEE! Two tests down!
Appointment with Colorectal Surgeon:April 28th-he wants to do more testing to see if Surgery will even help.
Anorectal Manometry:5/11- Normal but a little bit on the high side for my relaxing pressure. My squeeze pressure is the strongest he has ever seen!
Pudendal Nerve Study: 5/11-Normal but again barely normal
Gastric Empting Test:5/11-At 4 hours 20% was left:(, was diagnosed with mild Gastroparesis which Sugeon said should not effect results of surgery.
Small Bowel Study:5/19- Upper GI went well, SBFT was done within 30 minutes.
COLECTOMY ON JUNE 29TH @1P.M.
