Follow Geoff’s reversal in November, Geoff has awful problems with his bowels we have also had a couple of disastrous days out after having no control, we saw the surgeon this week who didn’t seen overly concerned and repeated colorectal nurses advice on keep trying combinations of meds , today we had a letter from surgeon outlining his appointment and it says that Geoff’s had his rectum removed , which is something we weren’t aware of , we new that Geoff’s was rectal
Cancer, but naively thought it was a resection if rectum, would this expiain why Geoff is having so much trouble, colorectal nurse has also said Geoff has resection syndrome, I have read the booklet regaining bowel control, which was very interesting,

Hi Tracey @sweetcheeks
Charlotte the nurse is away on hols next week so will reply to you when you're back.
In the meantime I'd suggest making another call to Geoff's colorectal nurse to get specific advice in your new knowledge and to see if they can give more practical advice.
Sorry I can't be of help
Big hugs
Bear
