I went to the colon/rectal specialist last week. He's decided I have
rectocele and intussusception, and now I have to have a defacography
done (to anyone who hasn't had one, it's exactly what it sounds like).
After a little research, I've found out that the intussusception is
fairly rarely in adults; it usually is found in infants and toddlers.
Also, one cause is apparently - you guessed it - adhesions!
So, now I'm waiting - and waiting - and waiting for them to get me an
appointment with the one doctor in this whole area that does this
defacography. Meanwhile, I'm as big as a house and in pain all the
time. I will definitely need surgery - "Get rid of those adhesions
again while you're at it!". I just hope they hurry up - I'm going to
lose my job if they take too long!
