Bowel Movements After Rectal Cancer Tumor Surgery

Hi Guys

After 11 months since my surgery I am still having problems with my bowel movements. 

Immediately after eating a meal I find myself having to visit the toilet continuously and cannot expel the contents in one sitting.

Has anyone had the same problem?
