It does sound like you are having true problems. I would continue to do research, and like Rosemary said, get the full check-up. Don't be afraid of the diarrhea; it doesn't happen to most people! As for me, things are still far from perfect, and currently, I am taking laxatives to help with bottom pressure I get, and make my stool slide out easier. I didn't think I would have to, but I am still trying to experiment and develop a routinue for myself! But what I can say, is that I am still recovering, still stay away from some foods, and some of the laxatives like MOM (that never worked before); I can take such a low dosage and get it to worked; something I would have never said before!!!! Just remember; any type of surgery puts your body in shock, and it takes time for the body to heal. I thought I would be perfect after surgery, but I am not. I am hoping by at least the end of the year I will be feeling somewhat normal again!
