MARIA - First let me invite you over to the TOTAL COLECTOMY thread under "OSTOMIES" where you will find a wealth of information. Please come and join in there!!!
I had my colectomy one year ago on November 9th. Everything was going well up until April/Mary of this year when I began to slow down considerably on my bm's. Of course my first thought was "oh great - not this again", however, after seeing my surgeon and running a host of tests to rule out anything serious, he recommended taking MiraLAX "again" daily. It can be bought OTC now and it has improved my situation.
If I were you I would stay clear of ANY fiber supplements. It can and does cause the opposite affect in a lot of people, especially since our small intestine is our way of transit now.
I will tell you that you're still very much in the beginning stage of the healing process, even two months post-op. For me personally I didn't begin feeling "normal" for the first four months post-op.
I hope you find your way over to the "OSTOMIES" thread and find the "TOTAL COLECTOMY" link.
God is SO good - His blessings are endless!
Trust in Him with all your heart!
Know He's in control over every situation you face!!
