Messy movements after LIS
I had LIS surgery about 13 years ago. Recently, I think mainly due to major anxiety after coming off anxiety medication, I have been obsessed with going to the bathroom and everything related to it. Anyway, one of the things i've been obsessed about, in addition from to the fact that it seems the hole is a bit less stretchy and tight, is that after every bowel movement there is a major cleanup effort that has to take place. I don't think in over 13 years have I had a bowel movement where it was one wipe and I was done. I used to, though. Not entirely sure it's related to the surgery. Could be looser stools that were related to the meds, or perhaps other things have changed as a result of aging (i.e. more hair in that area). But I was wondering if anyone else who had LIS and recovered experiences the same thing. I am pretty OCD about cleanliness so that is part of it. But I definitely have to spend some time cleaning things up afterwards and using lots of TP and/or wipes.
