I was talking with my psychologist this morning and telling her that I was getting the feeling like I was going to have a b.m or pass gas through the rectum. She said this is like phantom pain, and she's going to talk with some of her colleagues to see if hypnosis could possibly break the brain to rectum cycle. I know I'm a good candidate for hypnosis, and I sure hope it works.
I had this problem right after my surgery and it lasted for months. It finally went away, only to return after my bout of C-Diff. Now it's driving me nuts.
