Thanks so much for the reply. If you don't mind me asking, how did you live with the colonic inertia for so long? I couldn't imagine being like this for 20 years. I've only been dealing with it for two years and that has been bad enough.
It seems from what I've been reading on the web is that the majority of patients that have had the surgery do have controlled BM's, but I wanted to hear it straight from a patient's mouth. I've also read good things from the people that have posted here as well.
