Exercise without a rectum
Sorry if any of this is tmi.
I had an ultra low anterior resection 2 years ago. I had an ileostomy that was reveresed. I have no rectum left.
I have a few control issues with passing stools which are helped by supplementing with psyllium husks daily.
Since remission I’ve started running as a way to feel healthy again.
I’ve been offered a charity space in a half marathon but mornings is when I ‘go’ most so I’m feeling very anxious.
Has anyone in a similar position done a similar event? How did you cope? Did you take Imodium the night before or on the day?
Thank you. Hope you’re all well ☺️
