I just had one more thought. Did your doc use EEA staples at the anastomosis? This among (other things in my case) induced scarring in the walls of my anastomosis. So with yours I was thinking, even if your anastomosis is wide
open, are the walls of that joined area still muscular or are they now turned to scar tissue like mine did?
Did he blow in air to see if that area distended when he scoped you? This is how he would be able to tell if it was still muscular at the join and had not turned to scar tissue. If the walls of the join turn to scar tissue they are no longer peristaltic and poop just sort of moves down to the point of the join, drops through the join, then is able to be moved peristaltically by the rectum below the join.
