I am having probs in this department. I am coming down off detracortril steroids, which I call 'Lucy in the sky with Diamonds" cos you can feel so great on em. Not this time as other things are happening.
But for the 'runs' I have been on Questran. I found out last night that they ARE NOT a bulking agent but a med for lowering cholestrol. I DON'T have a cholestrol prob. and the gastro told me he was prescibing it to control the runs.
I googled it and it said it can cause constipation so I think that is why he put me on it.
but I have been on it constantly, for well over a year or more. And I take a whole sachet and he sometimes tells me to up it to two.
I am very uncomfortable about all this.
Please could people tell me what they are prescribed for runs.
I am in a bit of pain where the resection was done in 02, my only resection and I have a lot of 'wind' in other words I am farting alot! Any ideas?
Sorry for maybe, 'coarse' wording!
