I had the resection done because of chronic diverticulitis with fissures to the bladder. Before that surgery I had no problems with BMs, but since then I can't go. During that surgery he also did a rectal amputation, so having the TC is going to be interesting. He normally does the anastomosis to the sigmoid, but that was removed during the resection.
