Mine was ridiculously fast - I am talking minutes. The first time I drank red powerade, it went straight into the bag, I had barely finished swallowing. It looked like a blood transfusion bag. And when I would eat cottage cheese, I'd see entire curds popping into the bag within 2 or 3 minutes. That was both alarming and entertaining. I was constantly dehydrated, lost 20 pounds even though I ate as much as possible, and ended up in the hospital on TPN. All the stuff, both food and meds, that are supposed to slow things down did nothing for me.
I've read all the stuff about
jelly babies, marshmallows, crisps etc. slowing it down, but they seemed to do nothing for me. The meds however did work, although I think my dosage is quite high. I got dehydrated last week and ended up in hospital - "crispy" my surgeon called me !
