I am waiting to have my take down surgery. I am experiencing excessive mucus leakage. Some days I cannot leave the house. If I have no control over this leakage, will it be the same with leakage when I have my take down surgery? I am concerned about going through with the surgery if I am going to have incontinence. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
What are you eating?
Usually I found to start with that was my issue.
What are you drinking that affected me also.
I found that when I was loose if I did the brat diet it helped.
Also green tea helps with the slowing down of things for me.
This is life for me now though it as been since 99.
I did find the first 3 weeks to be the worse!
Leakage before takedown is very common, has nothing to do with your diet, and predicts nothing about your future pouch function. You should expect to be fine, in all likelihood.
