“The Warm Water Butt Club“…..
Now, there’s a catchy post title! That ought to keep the Search Engines busy!………
A few days ago, the wife and I were Christmas shopping at a large area store. The wife was off doing her thing, and I was pushing the cart, doing my thing. Suddenly, I had the very distinct sensation that warm water was pouring down the backs of both of my legs.
For a person with bowel issues courtesy of CES, this is no laughing matter.
It’s even worse when your entire butt and most areas of your legs have been completely numb since getting CES nearly 15 years ago.
I hurriedly pushed the cart to an empty aisle and proceeded to feel the back of my pants, knowing full well that I had probably just had a massive diarrhea episode without any warning.
Nope. Everything was dry as could be. Everything was dry, but I still had the sensation of warm water pouring down the backs of both numb legs and even my butt had the sensation that I had been sitting in warm water.
I just chalked it up to another freak CES gift and went on with my shopping.
Well, it’s been three days now, and here I sit at my computer chair, sitting in warm water, with warm water pouring down both legs. The sensation is still there. For the past three days I have been shuffling around, constantly patting my butt and legs, worried that I indeed had a major accident, all to no avail.
I sure hope this is not a new wrinkle that CES is going to bless me with for the rest of my life because this is going to drive me crazy! (Short drive for me!)
I told the wife and she says I need to go see the Doctor, but my first instinct is “Why? What can they do?” I’m 99.9% sure that they can do nothing and will just chalk it up as another weird neurological side effect of the CES.
So, a few questions for you out there in CES Land.
Do any of you have this same sensation?
Are you also a member of the exclusive “WARM WATER BUTT CLUB“?
And, have any of you seen new sensations that have popped up, YEARS after your initial CES diagnosis?
Out of all the wonderful symptoms that CES has graced my doorstep with, this is an entirely new sensation for me. The numbness is still present in the butt and legs, meaning you could stab me repeatedly with a rusty fork and I would feel no pain, BUT, I would feel this odd sensation that I am sitting in a small tub of warm water.
CES really hurts my head!
** On another note. Weeks ago, I had posted that the wife and I were headed off to New York City for a vacation and that I would post how I did once we got back. Well, the trip was rescheduled by the tour company until April of next year due to Snow and Ice here in the area on our original departure date.
Now, if you’ll excuse me…….. I need to go pat my butt for the 9th time this morning. Just in case.
