Bill, I don’t know what this surgeon might or might not have observed, nor what sort of history you have with this person. I wonder, though, if this is one of those surgeons you should run like hell from. At the least it might be time to switch to a good gastroenterologist, who would recommend a consultation with a surgeon if the need arises.
I don’t know what you’ve tried, if anything, to reduce your daily toilet trips, and you didn’t ask about that. We’re here if you could use some ideas.
