I had/have extreme colonic inertia for years. The running joke in my family was that Mommy never passes gas. I would get bloated and distended but no....relief. I had a TC which was not helpful for me, not to say it would not help someone else. Now I have a bag and although my stoma is very quiet, I do occationally have some gassy activity. This surgery has been a huge improvement. I hope you find success with your surgery as well.
