Thanks for the replies. This is the first time I have ever posted to any group. I don't know why the Vodka works to immediately either stop the D or allow me to eat and not have D. My only guess is that it relaxes what ever is causing the IBS in my body. I am a type A high strung person. I have D every morning without the Lomotil and Imodium. My 20 year old son died 4 years ago and I found that when I was put on Elavil that symptoms got better. But I continually had to increase the dose to the point I felt like a zombie and got off of it. If I eat anything during the day, no matter what food it is, I immediately get D and am bound to the house until I take 4 to 7 Lomotil and 2 or 3 doses of Imodium. I only take the liquid Imodium for the faster effect.
I think that adhesions have a lot of affect with this. I had a laperotomy where they cut open your stomach for endometriosis. I have had 4 laperoscopies as well. The adhesions they found with each surgery were huge. I was very lucky to be able to have my son after the first surgery.
Thank you for the replies. I am 50 years young and this is the first time I have ever spoken with anyone that knows how I feel.
