Disneynutt, I rarely take immodium now. I did take it for a bit probably a month after takedown if I was going out for dinner because for quite a while I would still get those urges that made me feel like I had UC again and I didn't want that to happen when I was out. Those have subsided quite a bit now. When I have taken Immodium I've only taken one at a time and to tell you the truth, I'm not sure I can tell a difference. Maybe if I'd taken more than one it would have. When I had my second surgery I had to take a lot of immodium because I had really, really high output. But things evened out in a couple weeks and I didn't have any major issues after that. I couldn't even tell you how many times I go a day because it's really not an issue at all so that's another reason I haven't stuck with the Immodium routine.
Sue, thanks for the reply. Fortunately, the tomatoes don't leave a rash or anything and it's not unbearable or even bad enough to make me not want to eat them. And it's weird to because I can eat chips and salsa at most restaurants and be fine but just feel it when I have chopped up tomatoes in the salsa at Chipolte.
