Has anyone had the LAR procedure and, if so, what side effects did you experience? Did you have fecal incontinece?

    Yes 9/08
    I had a great surgeon. Incision healed well; no complications form surgery. I do have "clustering" or multiple poop syndrome (MPS), more gas, and watch what I eat-smaller meals, no cherries, no watermelon for example for me.
