Thanks for the reply. I realized I didn't put up my state of being as of now after your post.
I am in much the same boat. Each day a little different and it ebbs and flows towards progress. My post surgery follow up is not until Monday so I am curious as to how that will go. Let me know about yours.
Currently, I spend a lot of time in the bathroom and not much time exercising. I try to walk around a couple times a day 10 min each time if possible. I say try because walking of course tends to send me to the bathroom. I eat 3 meals a day... not large meals and usually have a snack in the afternoon. Bland foods that should thicken up stools like rice potatoes and pasta are what I am currently eating. I am trying to get some fish in there for protien. Also a bit of yogurt. Staying away from sweets seem to help.
I spend extra time in the bathroom taking a soak in the tub. At least twice a day and often more. Yesterday, I sat up on the couch or chair nearly all day but today I wanted to sleep mid morning so I crawled in bed for a couple hours and dozed on and off. Just tired. I have not slept thru the night but I have had a few good nights of rest only getting up 1 or 2 times. The constant physical and mental game of am I going to have to get up and go or not is exhausting.
I keep a journal to keep track and I believe the least amount of movements I have had is 12 in 24 hours. I have to keep track or I will underestimate it by far I know. have taken immodium a couple times to good relief. I am also curious about metamucil. I am trying not to do much with all that until I see my doctor and see what he says.
For the past few days it has gotten physically a little easier each day. Here is to the next week being even better and more consistent.
