IBS-D + Anal Stenosis?

Postby conniptionfit » 19 Aug 2019, 02:09

Helloooo! It's been a bit since I was here! (Had a successful fistulotamy?.. Fistulectomy?? lol And a colonoscopy!) Pre-apologies for my blunt-ness!

Anyway, I was since then, I have been having trouble feeling 'finished' with bowel movements, and was diagnosed with anal stenosis-- This, after a horrible procedure of 'shit barium gel in a diaper while we take pictures of it with an MRI.' (Turns out that wasn't necessary, and a different doctor just stuck a finger in my backside to decide it wasn't a rectocele/cystocele/etc. Everything felt healthy (albeit tight enough to form diamonds) and in place.)
Does anyone else have these two issues together? Anal stenosis, plus IBS-D? I'm basically living day to day having to take Metamucil so I can have a solid BM-- but if I happen to miss a dose, or don't take the exact right amount, I'm left either going to the bathroom constantly, or having to use Pedia-lax glycerin suppositories to 'finish.'

I'm usually super exhausted after that, but after four years back and forth to the doctor, I'm just wondering if I'm potentially destroying my insides, or if I should suck it up and go back to see a doc. I also have fibromyalgia and narcolepsy, so I'm just always tired and sore and exhausted, so the idea of another year series of going to the doctor for this, having them tell me it's this, that, and the other thing, having multiple tests, all for it to end up that I'm doing what the right thing... makes me want to vomit.

I suppose I'm just asking for opinions? Obviously not medical advice lol If anyone has the same issues, I'd love to know! <3
