SCHIC, I had a proctocolectomy with ileostomy 2 months ago, not a subcolectomy, but I too noticed shortly after beginning to eat "real food" that my stool exhibited a wide variety of colors and consistencies varying from day to day. Yellow, green, brown all occur for me too; I guess it just depends on what you ate that day. When it was pinkish for you, did you eat something red earlier? Mine was only reddish wneh I drank a lot of fruit punch Gatorade...
Mentioned the color changes to my stroma nurse when they started, she said it is no cause to be concerned.
I hope all goes smoothly - thanks for the input. I have never asked my dr whether the senna is damaging, but i know it must be, but not sure the effect it has on the small bowel as yet. i wont get to speak to them now as the next time will be when i have the op. over here you only get to speak to your consultant if you pay a lot of money to see him, but i am having the op though the national health service.
Sub - hope the pain sorts itself out and is nothing too awful - I just saw your other post.
i am doing a trial this week - no laxatives. My hynotherapist gave me a CD and said to use it every day for a week without laxatives. its gonna be a tough one.
