Soo I'm almost three weeks out and my loop ileo is still a handful, haha! I am taking some Imodium (1/2 tablet 30 min before each meal) and that keeps my output good-ish (around 8-900 cc, still more liquid than I'm comfortable with but at least not getting dehydrated), but I'm a Type A and I know I can do better! Not to mention I am still nursing a secret dream of drinking a cup of coffee... even iced tea seems to be too much caffeine for my system to handle right now
Anyway I would like to start experimenting with Metamucil. Never used it before. I remember bootstrap said she ate the little wafer
cookies... When do you eat them relative to meals? Do you have to limit liquids when you eat them as well? Any general tips/tricks?
