At the 3 month mark, it might be a tad soon to expect your intestines to have readjusted to the shock of the surgery. However, it would seem that the diarrhea should have slowed down and not be getting worse.
The lower end of the small bowel, the terminal ileum, is where bile salt is reabsorbed. The gall bladder releases small amounts of bile salt everytime you eat. This aids in digesting food. When the body cannot reabsorb the bile salts, it leaves the small bowel and goes into the colon. Bile salts acts like a laxative when it gets into the colon.
How does one know if bile salts are the culprit? Usually [though not always] bile salt diarrhea causes watery diarrhea and urgency shortly after eating. Sometines, a person even has to leave in the middle of a meal because of the diarrhea. Does this sound like what is happening to you?There is a medication that is very effective in helping bile salt diarrhea.
