Hello! I hope you guys are doing well today! I just wanted to see if something I'm experiencing is normal at this stage--7 months post-takedown. I still feel like I'm spending a lot of time in the bathroom most of the times I go. I feel like my pouch only empties a little at a time. Like I go some, sit for a bit, and go some more. That usually happens a few times before I really feel done. This isn't a problem when I take psyllium husk, but it's also the only reason I would take it at this point. Everything else is fine, and I am feeling great.
My surgeon mentioned the possibility of doing a pouch exam when I told him this, though he also wasn't really concerned. I'm just not convinced that I need to go under anesthesia and go through that whole process right now for this level of a complaint. Without any problems, I'm not supposed to have my yearly pouch exam until April.
What do you guys think? Thanks!!
