Subtotal Colectomy and diarrhea - does it ever get any better?

How do you feel months after Sub-Total Colectomy?
Very good; no problems now - 100.0%
good but must take many meds - 0.0%
constant diarrhea - 0.0%
it took over a yr. for me to feel better - 0.0%

I had a SubTotal Colectomy with ileo-rectal anastamosis over 1 yr. ago.  I had this surgery because nothing else worked (doctors tried for over 20 yrs with other possible solutions) to solve my severe constipation problem.  Well, now for the last year I have the opposite problem . . . diarrhea 8 -10 times a day.  Once again, I have seen many doctors and have tried to control this problem with diet and meds.  I would love to hear from someone who has had the same surgery, is at least a yr. post-surgery and is now doing well.  Please tell me, what did you have to do to achieve this health status?  Also, is there anyone on this site who has tried either of these products:
1. BeneCalorie - to gain weight
2. Gluta-Sove - good for the intestines?
