Poop Watch '08
My bowels have made very little progress. Yesterday evening I started to have very small poops, were talking mouse turds here. I hoped it was a sign things were moving. But nope. It was just a tease. I put a call into my surgeon, he said to try some Milk of Magnesia and to call back in 6 hours with a detailed report. Hopefully things are just backed up and this works. Otherwise, I would have to come in. It could mean there is something structurally wrong with the new plumbing.
I feel emotionally wore out, drained. I'm tired of all this. I want to be human again. I want to feel whole and not broken. I just want to get back to my life.
I'll update if there are any new developments in the toilet bowl.
My name is Steph. At the age of 29 I was diagnosed with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP). This blog is my journey through life with this disease.
I hope to use this blog to provide a way for friends and family to know what I am going through both mentally and physically. I also hope to provide a place for others w/ this disease to see that they are not alone.
