Met w/ surgeon today. My pelvic floor function tests all show my muscles and nerves are okay. The marker study shows colonic inertia. So his nurse is gonna call me on Monday to schedule operation next month. But will be able to hook up the small intestines to the rectum.

After I got home I took laxative and am going thru the cleaning out process. The cramps are awful. I'm so glad this cycle of eating and then taking a laxative and then pain and cramps will be ending soon. It feels like I'm going thru labor everytime I do this. I'm delivering a pile of *^&*%!

Thanks for everyone's help thru all this. Will post updates when I get them.
