THANK YOU for this wealth of information!!! I see that it's been quite some time since you posted this information. I hope by upping this thread that others with many questions find the answers here, I know I did!!!My colorectal specialist is wanting to do two more tests before he makes a final decision to move forward with surgery.1) A 7 day transit study2) Ano-rectal motility studyMy GI set me up with the colorectal specialist after my defagram showed an extremely large rectocele and because I wasn't able to "move" the barium balloon that was inserted during the defagram.I explained that I've suffered with chronic constipation my entire life, that I was hospitalized when I was 15 months old, now I'm 43, and that within the last eight or nine months, nothing wants to move. The colonoscopy that the GI performed revealed a lot of looping of the colon, but other than that it looked pretty good.Since July I've been taking my daily poop potion which consists of Miralax and Lactalose. I also tried Zelnorm, but it didn't work. At first, the poop potion seemed to move things along (although I never felt completely empty AND wasn't empty). In the last two weeks - The poop potion isn't working very well at all. I've tried doubling up on the Miralax with very little success - the only thing I seem to pass is gas and it is very foul smelling to put it lightly.Well, I am very thankful to you for posting all the information regarding the various tests and the purposes of these tests.
