I am still awake. I just can't sleep. I am having that old abdominal pain that I wish would just go away. I have had abdominal soreness every since my hyst,but now I am getting like cramps down on the left side. That is completely new.This leads me to believe whatever is going on on that left side, must be getting worst. I thought the rectocele/enterocele repair would take care of the bm issue, but no such luck!!!For the first four weeks everything was good. I mean, it was always watery, but at least I was going several times a day. I tried to cut back on the colace like my gyn told me last week, then I ended up not being able to go. I have been back to the original amt. since Sat. I went three times just like water yesterday and haven't gone at all today.I can pretty much feel that I will end up at the gastroenterologist or the colon rectal surgeons office before long. I really feel like I have been through all I can take. I have had more than enough tests,exams, surgeries, etc. I just want to feel like any other normal human being. Maybe that is too much for me to ask.

Hi Peg, I'm so sorry that you are still experiencing problems after your surgery. It must be very frustrating for you.
I'm hoping your Dr.'s will have an answer for you when you go to see them. Have you tried gentle things like adding prunes to your diet? I've had to take them pretty regularly since my surgery, although I haven't had to deal with the problems that you have.
Take care,

Hugs, Anne

Sweetie, With all the surgeries you have had, your intestines are probably irritated. What were they like before your surgeries???? Is it possible you have IBS? Mine flared up terribly after my GB and hyst surgeries. Ask your doc if that is a possibilty.
