I am three and a half months out of takedown. Its been pure hell. I feel physically better, I am strong, but I am on the toilet all the time. Literally all the time. I have had dilatation, several rounds of Cipro, chnaged over to Lomotil, and I am about at my wits end. I am 58 and I did this so I could work another 10 years or so. I dont think I can keep this up. I hardly sleep, I carry a diaper bag everywhere, I am always checking "do I have enough pads, cream, wipes, underwear, etc" that along with the surgeries have left me sef cathering my bladder.
I am seriously considering going back to bag. At least I could count on it working. At least I could sleep.
I dont know.
I had my surgeries at Cleveland Clinic and cant say enough about how good they are, its just this is killing me.
My wife is BiPolar and does the best she can but she has her own issues. We have a 16 year old daughter who now lives with my brother because of all we are dealing with.
I dont really think there is any magic out there for me, I guess I just wanted to vent a litte to someone who gets it.
