YAY Ali, finally progress! sounds like dr Thacker knows her buisiness and i'm glad you like her and feel comfortable with her. i thought you already had defecography..? i def think you must have this test before surgery. she must have a full picture of your pelvic's anatomy and functional abilities. it's an aweful test, i know, but it is a must before going to this surgery. i would be very skeptical about
her if she hadn't ordered the test. tho i don't understand how one can have defecography A DAY before surgery???? that surely sounds crazy, i mean what about
all the barium they insert in your rectum and the huge barium shake you have to drink for this test???? how can that be done day before surgery??? beats me.....
but anyway you're not having it day before surgery and i'm glad. i know how you feel about this test. first time i had it i wanted to bury my self from embarrasment but you'll be wearing a big robe and it is so short, it will be over before you know it!
Ali, i'm so excited for you. and i'm glad your parents are accepting it finally and supporting you! i know how important it was for you. and we're here for you too with any question or concern and will try to help best we can. keep us posted on the defeco's results. hang in there honey! i know how eager and anxious you feel right now, believe me i know. but not long is left for you and you'll feel so much better w/o this nonfunctional colon. you're finally on your way to a healthier life good luck with the test!!
