Hello everybody, I'm very glad I found this forum because the information helped me a lot. In may 2018 I had an emergency surgery due to a toxic colon (i never had any issues before). It really turned my life upside down. So now I'm 7 weeks post takedown (3 steps procedure) and looking forward.
I'm pretty satisfied about the outcome. My frequency is about 4-6 times a day, no leakage, no pain except for some butt burn and i can hold it for hours. I follow a bland diet and take 1 Imodium in the morning. So far, so good right?
The last 2 weeks though I have this strange, itchy feeling in my anal canal that's making life less comfortable. It doesn't hurt but I feel it all the time which is making me crazy. I think it's stool or gas entering the anal canal and causes an itchy pressure but I'm not sure. It does make me go to the bathroom to get some relief, but within 30 min it's back. Is it normal to feel the stool or gas entering the anal canal all the time or could it be cuffitis? Does anyone else recognize this?
Thanks in advance.
