I used questran, then questran lite before my surgery. It helped tremendously with the D. I reccomend taking it before you eat in the morning. I found if I took it after eating that I got bloating and such, and it sometimes didn't work as well. I did gain a lot of weight within the first 2 months of starting questran. My dr says it wasn't the questran but it is the only thing that changed for me at the time.
That is my experience.
