Had a colectomy 2 months ago and I know it's normal to leak while fluid from the rectum until the reversal.  Today when I went to the bathroom and wiped, I saw green and a parsley (which I ate earlier) came out.  Now I'm going crazy.  Is this normal? I'm afraid something is wrong and I have a pouchogram tomorrow.  Any info???

Hey Sue,
Just came back from the pouchogram and it was a breeze.  A little cramping afterwards but it was easy.  The Dr. said it looked excellent but he wanted to read the film a little more detail just in case anything was missed.  Thursday I have an appointment to see if I can set up the take down.  I might have to bug you with questions on take down pretty soon...hahaha.  Thanx again for getting back to me so quickly on everything
