Has anyone with colonic inertia experienced a few "good" days, with loose BMs after minimal laxatives (say 2 capfuls of Miralax for a couple of days)? Sometimes nothing works for me, but lately I'm able to go a couple of times per day, a little output (maybe 1/2 cup) and very, very small and loose.
I can't go at all without some laxatives, and did a Sitzmarker with 21 out of 24 remaining...but if I'm able to go some right now I'm still wondering about having surgery.
Anyone else have a stretch of good days with CI pre-surgery?
-Lifelonge chronic constipation, never identified as a child
-Const became "severe" in the last decade=BM maybe 2X mth
-Told it was "just the way I was wired"
-Multiple lax/enema/meds and diets
-Colonscopy in Aug, 2011 fine
-Sitzmark test late Aug 2011= 21 markers out of 24 markers after 5 days
-Sched for total colectomy 10/10, sm bowel to rectum, probably no bag
