Another Poop Success

my 9 year old enco/megacolon gal felt an impending bowel movement coming! “I have a poop stuck in my butt” made me happy. It went in the toilet, y’all! Second time in 2 months. I still think we’re leaning towards cecostomy at this point, but I still take pleasure in knowing that 2 poops in the past 2 months got past her lack of RAIR and anal manometry doesn’t show the whole picture. Woot!

It Wasn’t Poop Time!

I caught my 9 year old Wilma FIDGETING (doing a poop dance)—- she NEVER EVER does that— her only toilet poops are scheduled (always happening after dinner when I TELL her to go) or enema-ed (if she doesn’t poop after dinner I HELP her poop after dinner). This one was enormous enough (thanks megacolon) that her lack of RAIR (failed two anal manometries) somehow picked this one up— she had to poop! It wasn’t even dinner time yet!  Did she register that? No— she still got a little in the underwear but I told her to run to the toilet and get the rest out and whammmmo! Go girlie! woot!

Apparently there is SOME nerve ending power there— it just has to be SUCH a massive bowel movement that it would explode the colon of almost anyone else for her to feel the urge.

Here’s a post I’m not sharing to all of my facebook friends.  If you’re following this blog you either know me super well and I’ve invited you here (and you’re good with poop posts), or you don’t know me at all because we’re anonymous here. 🙂
