Oh gosh, congrats on finding treatable issues, and having them taken care of. My issues were different than yours, but here is my story. I had a radical hysterectomy along with radiation and chemo in 2001, due to uterine cancer. All good, but in 2017 I began having excruciating pains. It was found, with difficulty, that I had adhesions wrapped around the small colon, and I had a resection of about 7 to 8” Of the small intestine. Two years later, I am still dealing with diarrhea, sometimes gas pain that is overwhelming. But, I am ‘healthy’ and exercise, walk, and play tennis. I have to be able to ‘escape’ When in groups, due to gas. You will adjust – it is never ‘the same’, but you are alive!
