Hi. I had sigmoid colon resection 7 months ago. Have you spoken with your surgeon about it? They may want to do a colonoscopy to check out the area? Maybe also a CT scan? I just had one, as I am still having some residual pain and go back to my surgeon, this week, to review the results. Also, do you take fiber? Mine tells me I need to be on a high fiber diet to keep everything moving, I guess. Hope this helps.
Hi, I had a sigmoid colon resection a little over 3 months ago. My doctor has me on a high fiber diet (30 grams) per day. The FiberOne line of foods are wonderful and very high in fiber. I eat the cereal (13 grams), yogurt (5 grams) and the granola bars (9 grams), plus lots of fruits and veggies. Since the surgery I have 4 -5 bowel movements a day.
Interesting - especially for other patients who underwent similar surgery and are having to cope with more bowel movements. I think that if you were eating a lower fibre diet you would have many more bowel motions of a more liquid/corrosive nature.
