I have always been very active all my life, no IBD, but...I broke my butt...yep, that can really happen and need advice from real experts.
Lifting weights, age and years of spinal damage from doing the same culminated in nerve damage after an exterme lifting session that left my rectum paralized.
I have gone from exercising every day for the last 40 years (since I was 16), socially acive and productive at work to dropping 30 lbs, stop exercising, much less productive and a hermit shut-in. I cannot have a bowel movemwnt. I limit diet, take tons of Mirilax daily to prevent im[paction and clear my colon with water irriagatin which is painful for days.
I have tried everything and anything, all medications, laxatives and biofeedback with no effect.
Should I get an ileostomy? I just want to be functional in life again.
Really appreciate any and all input!!!
