It's possibly the longest I've managed without a BM; still visited the toilet to pee though.
Not purposely resisted the urge or sensation to go, either; I rarely do.
To add; at the 12th hour, I did have a BM; I wasn't constipated, whether that's even possible with a J pouch.
...... is not an achievement to celebrate ?
Prior to my J pouch surgery, one of my main concerns was.......
Would emptying my J pouch interfere with my day to activities and how often would I need to empty the pouch ?
At the time, I was having to empty the colostomy bag every 2 to 3 hours and, once it was getting past the 2 hour days later mark; it would be ballooning up like an inflated air bag.
So, to achieve 12 hours without the need to evacuate my J pouch; I thought this was worthy of a comment.
