Hey everyone it's been awhile for me having to experience having diharrea most of last year that's what was happening to me after every meal every day.I thought I'd never be rid of going through that experience it was really getting to me luckily I found digestive enzymes to help with holding off the dreaded D but lately they have not been working how they should at least these last couple of days.Yesterday and today ate regularly taking my enymes but I experienced the dreaded D as you can tell I hate saying the word and spelling it out lol.Now I'm afraid that my enzymes are not doing the trick anymore but I'm not going to worry I just really need to watch what I eat I realalized it was what I ate that caused me such agony.I'm also really thinking of just eating a diet of plain white rice and bread that way I just wont have any problems but that wont give me much nurishment or calories or help with my putting on weight.I'm just not feeling having the dreaded D come back everyday I will not be able to deal with it.I'm feeling good now it's past and I'm just going to eat something light and I'm just reasearching online what I can do to keep the dreaded D at bay lol.Hopefully tomorrow will be a good day and I'm really going to watch what I eat and just not stress over this and oh I need to start eating breakfast again cause that can add to getting diharrea easily.I'm so glad I can come here and just let my frustration out on the screen till next post wishing you all good stomach and digestive health. P.S. and I'm going to really start taking L-Glutamine :-)

jt - Somedays I am about to eat a diet consisting of white rice and bananas! Throwing in a few Club Crackers and maybe applesauce too.

I sure know how frustrating all of this can be. Especially when you think you've found one thing that really, really works. In your case, the enzymes. How frustrating and maddening this must be!

I've been at this for almost 10 years now and if there's anything that is consistent in all of this is that there is NO consistency! Just when I think I have things figured out, I have a string of bad days and all out D sometimes.

The only thing that I can tell you is I have noticed that my body just goes thru these weird phases. They seem to rotate and if I have to pick a time frame, they seem to be on a monthly basis. I am almost 54 now and haven't had a period in almost a year so I don't think it's PMS (although I know many women would still say it's hormonal related). I just had a 5 day stretch where my stool was extremely messy, almost putty like. No matter what I did, it stayed this way - diet, meds, not eating, eating smaller portions, lots of water, walking - nothing, would stop this putty stage, it went on and on and on. Then like in the past, I could feel things changing inside, my internal swelling was down (I swear but I can tell when the walls of my colon are swollen), my stomach is going down again and now I have formed stool. That keeps coming and coming. After a while, I think - now wait a minute, I'm not eating THIS much to produce this much stool!

It's just cyclical with me if that helps you any. I looked up the definition - "something that happens periodically, ie, on a regular basis." Yep, that pretty much sums up my situation!

And if I let my body do its thing, it's over faster, if that also makes any sense.

I have noticed that when I try to control my situation without nature (just plain food and time), it revolts and things get even more messed up. It does turn itself around if I give it time.

But again, this is just MY wacky system. You're still trying to figure out yours.

I do wish you better days and to find something that does work for you. Right now as I type my gut is rumbling like you wouldn't believe. It's so loud!
Marsky/Mary's story.....
- Diagnosed with rectal cancer, April 1999 - Stage I, no treatment necessary
(5 hour colon resection: 90% sigmoid removed, 15 inches of colon removed, gall bladder removed, given temporary colostomy)
- Colostomy reversal, June 1999
- Left with IBS/D symptoms, multiple bm's every day
- On a low residue diet at least 75% of the time
- Takes Colace 50 mg each evening

All in all I do okay, I just use the bathroom A LOT! But I survived and beat cancer!
