Thanks tammylane for the encouragement. It is a marathon not a sprint and patience is the key. I'm confident I can get to a new and acceptable normal with time. And in between time I'm taking it as easy as I can and not putting too much pressure on myself.

I'm 10 days out from my reversal. At first my BMs were loose, urgent, and uncontrollable. Well I haven't had any BMs for the last 3 days. I don't feel bloated or nauseous; I have been eating; I am passing gas. The MD has recommended I take some Miralax. I was going ~20X/day and now nothing. Can my system really make that abrupt of a transition?

This hasn't been bumped up in awhile and there is so much good information for members dealing with the aftereffects of a reversal. Hope all my other reversal buddies are doing well.
