I had my colon removed because of an infection that caused it to perforate in July of 2010> In january of 2011, several weeks ago, I had the reversal surgery and I am trying to get back to a semblance of normality. I am feeling pretty good. My stool is very watery but after 2 weeks I am having less bowel movements and more regular - about every 6 hours, but very watery. I am trying to eat different foods to reduce the liquidness - my doctor says that my intestine will eventually train itself to do a lot of the functions of the colon. I am wondering how others are dealing with this problem. I am glad to not have to deal with the bags and skin irritation.
