Does anyone have any tips for dealing with this?
I am having explosive watery diarrhoea, a bit like you get when doing bowel prep. I can't seem to keep it in. I suddenly need to go and am not quite making it to the toilet in time.
I don't know why this is happening. I have a fistula that has cut through my sphincter muscle, and am wondering if the d is coming out the fistula instead of being retained (for a few seconds!) by the anus.
Anyway, it is really hard to cope with. I'm scared to leave the house and am scared to take Imodium, partly because I know my doctor here disapproves of it, and partly because it is really starting to get painful to have a bm, and don't want it all to get backed up inside and then come out as a harder, bigger bm tomorrow.
Any tips? I'm already on soft foods and will probably bump myself up to a liquid diet today.
