  2. I am in great need of help. I had a colon resection in May of 2018. The surgery was required because of constant divertilitis attacks. Everything changed after the surgery. My life is absolutely miserable because I now cannot poop at all on my own. I have been trying everything from suppositories, Linzess, smooth move tea, etc. I will come to you if I cannot find someone here to help me. My life is planned around laxatives which I hate using. Most of the time it comes down to using a fleets enema. I have developed hemroids that rule my life from the pain.

    • Hi Paula,

      I’m so sorry you are struggling. I can’t imagine how difficult this has been for you. How much do your colon was removed? Where do you live, and I can try to look and see if I can find someone skilled near you!

      ~ Jessica
