Hi - my BF was living the same story...he was exhausted from all the D and never wanted to leave the bedroom post -op. He had an ileostomy reversal in Aug and has just managed to go back to work 2 weeks ago. He has found that Immodium (or the generic brand) works wonders for him. He still has loose BMs but they are manageable and formed. In speaking to his GI, he recommended 4 a day to keep the D under control and boy, he notices right away if he doesn't take it in the morning and before bed!
