I Don't want to sound to disgusting but, what is the average time it take for found to pass with most people. Today I had lunch at about 130 2ish. And Something I ate came through un-digested about 4 hours later. Is this normal, normal for a crohn's?

It varies for me, it seems I have more BMs in the am however yesterday I went 2 times in the am (one before eating the other after eating, then 2 more after dinner. Sometimes I can ID what came out cuz it looks the same as it went in.

It actually varies from person to person, but generally in all actuality whatever you eat today will be completely out in 3 days which is what I've been told by my GI's, colon and rectom surgeon and family doctors....like I said though it varies from person to person to some degree, especially for those of us with bowel issues.

I have found that on average "whatever goes in, comes out" in around 10-14 hours.

Hey,

I agree that this must vary from person to person, but I think the totally rapid emptying of the gut is a Crohn's related thing...my food used to always take 12 hours or so to move through (and I've read this is kind of an average), but when I'm flaring I can pass undigested stuff as quickly as 15 minutes after eating it...so...I think how fast food passes is a combination of personal history/characteristics and disease activity...and what you eat can probably also factor in (different foods moving through at different rates).

I also think it depends on whether or not you have strictures. For me things go through much slower now then when I was first diagnosed. used to be as little as 15 minutes.....now it can take days.
