Hi, and welcome to the site. I have found this site to be very helpful. My daughter had a total colectomy 11/11/08. She has had some complications and now has a temporary ileostomy. Anyway, she too was going to the bathroom all the time. They had just put her on immodium, lomotil, and something to bulk up the stool.Those did indeed help. If you are not on them already, might be worth running it by your doctor. Her surgeon told us that it would be a good 6 months to a year before your body was back to "normal" but the frequencies and consitancy should change and become more normal.
Dont know if this helps, but rest assure you are normal. There are many times that my daughter goes to the bathroom and doesnt pee.. She thought that was very weird.
