So I am just shy of three weeks post-ileostomy reversal. I have not seen anyone else complaining of these symptoms, so wondering if it is just me. I was prepared for the frequent bathroom trips and butt burn/itch. I was not prepared for how uncomfortable each BM would be. I get chills every time-near the end of BM and feel like there is something large that still needs to pass, that I need to push out. I do not strain because I am afraid for prolapse, but there is pressure remaining. It goes away when I stand up, but this happens every single time. Has anyone else experienced this and please tell me if this uncomfortable sensation disappears in time. I try to get in all sorts of different positions to be sure I am "emptying".
