Thanks for sharing that Sherry. I am sorry to hear you're having problems again. I hope you can last through the holidays as well! Of course I am hoping the same thing for me. :-) My bowels had started moving again for awhile, now they stopped again. Damn! I hate focusing my whole day around a BM. Before these surgeries I had months when I didn't even have to think about it, it was normal and natural part of life. Now it's like "It's 11pm and I haven't had a BM today, now it's 5pm next day and still no BM, oh no, more laxatives, still no BM" like my life revolves around it! I hate that! Starting with a new doc next week and hope to get a referral to a really great colon/rectal surgeon in this area,who also does GI testing. Maybe he can find the problem and provide a solution, finally. I never give up hope. Hugs, Gina
