Great to hear of your success. Which city did you have your surgery in?

Thanks guys!

Bit of an update. It's been 2 months now. Spent the last month tapering off miralax 1G at a time (i was using 18-20G a day). I just stopped miralax completely the other day. Stools are bulkier and less frequent but it's been going well. Working on my dietplan to have more fibre etc.

Had a slightly weird issue. I mentioned a skin tag so I decided to try the apple cider vinegar remedy. It was burny obv and the area got irrtated but nothing bad. I did it for 3 or 4 days. I then had to help my mom move so I was lifting and lugging boxes and furnature all day. Near the end my butt started burning bad. Later on I realized there was the same smell from when I'd had surgery. Just a foul smelling stink (not like feces at all). A shower got rid of it and nothing since and I've been using some prep H to calm the area after my idiocy with the apple cider vinegar lol.
