Post colectomy question

JTSimonPosts: 104

On Wednesday it will be a year since I had a partial colectomy. I've found I can no longer tell the difference between needing to pass gas or use the bathroom. Has anyone else who's had a partial colectomy experienced this? I have my quarterly follow up with my GI next month and plan to ask him about it. He's told me I have a number of fissures but I don't know if that would contribute to it or not.
