Thank you for all of the useful information Annie. I've heard of colon removal surgeries and thought they resulted in needing a bag. Thank you for easing my fears about that.
I know worrying doesn't help me. I just get so upset by every answer I "don't" find through these medical procedures, diets, and pills that my mind starts creating worst case scenarios.
I have not had my pelvic floor tested but going by what your describing it may not be an issue for me. Once my waste moves to the lower parts of my large intestine I have no problem getting it out. Everything gets stuck in the tranverse and upper descending colon.
I'm trying to be patient while getting these tests. Unfortunately here in Canada each test can take up to 1 or 3 months to get due to long wait lists. Waiting is the hardest part for me. It just means more starving and more pain.
Again, thank you for all of the information. I really hope you get good news. Take care Annie.
