I had a ileostomy 4 years ago followed by a reversal, have been really well, passed my 3rd year colonoscopy and bowels have finally settled into a "sort of" routine.  Lately I have been having what I call skinny poop as it is pencil thin and plenty of wind during the day.
Any suggestions would really be appreciated.
Good health to you all!

Sounds like a stricture, but it has been so long since your surgery usually strictures don't form that far out from surgery but who knows. Just my 2 cents. Good luck. Rosemary

that's what I thought too.. but I'm guessing they would have seen that in your last colonoscopy. Are you getting any pain Annie ?? I guess just keep an eye on things and head off to see your Doc if things are getting worse. There may be some sort of partial obstruction so look out for other symptoms, you may have developed some adhesions maybe?. Take care and keep us posted. Sarah
