So for the last six years I've had diarrhea, usually very watery and sometimes explosive. Had resection surgery in January 08 and now in the last week I've suddenly become miserably constipated. I feel like I need to go and nothing comes out. I feel all bloated for about
a day and a half and then finally I go. This has happened twice this week and after I've finally been able to go I go back to diarrhea. When I was able to go it was just mushy soft not like I would expect if I was truely constipated. What could be going on? Do you think I'm having stricture issues again? I'm taking entocort and pentasa presently.
