Ask your doc if you can take immodium to slow and thicken stool. Also try bananas, rice, applesauce, and dry toast. Also pasta and potatoes are good thickeners. I'm sorry you have been through so much. I too went down a similar road under very different circumstances. I feel for you. Try these ideas and good luck. esoR

Also try metimucil. I mix a teaspoon with a small cup of warm water.

So sorry you are dealing with this. Have you been able to see your doctor?

I'm guessing you are having such liquid stools because of the small amount of intestine you have left, plus having no gallbladder. I know a few people who have had their gallbladders out and they have frequent diarrhea now. I agree that you should try immodium or something similar if you havne't already.

I'm so sorry for everything you've been through!!

How was your output when you had the ileostomy?

Have you tried baby food bananas? For some reason, they help me thicken my output....
Diagnosed w/colonic inertia, obstructive defecation syndrome, anismus, rectocele, and intussusecption
2005-hysterectomy w/pelvic prolapse repairs
2010-subtotal colectomy, rectopexy, and temporary diverting loop ileostomy. Parastomal hernia discovered in November, so more surgery, probably end ileostomy with relocation of stoma.
