I wonder if this happens to other banders out there? Look away now if you are squeamish!
My bowel habits have changed so much after surgery. I suppose it makes sense, less volume in...less volume out. I used to be pretty regular, usually once a day in the AM. Now I am lucky if I poo about once every 2-3 days and when I do it seems as if I am pooing the full length of my colon, LOL...I warned you...TMI! Ever watch Me, Myself and Irene...the scene where Charlie/Hank poops on the neighbor's lawn and then the screen fades to someone getting soft serve chocolate ice cream? Yeah, that's what it is like for me now.
Another reference from pop culture...comedian Ron White's line fits me all too well lately. "Ever take a crap so big your pants fit better?" I don't feel constipated necessarily, it's just that my body seems to hold onto it until I poo all at once for the week. Wonder if I need more fiber? I think I do pretty well most weeks. Or perhaps this is just a new way that my body is functioning. No cause for alarm, just one of those things that gets you thinking. Sorry if this was too personal of a subject, but I did warn you ahead of time. LOL.
