Hey Gang,
Just a simple question.

When you have out puts that are like dirty water, is this considered to be the dreaded "D" ?
I've been having this out put after my evening meal.I am taking immodine pills like I have a financal intrest into the company that make them,8 to 10 pills mainly after 7pm.
I believe the watery out put could be caused by tea or coffee.Has anyone out there been down that same road ? If so, what do you think was the colpruit & what did you do ?

Thanks,
Johnny

I've been getting increasingly frequent output into the bag. My gastroenterologist says that 5 empties a day should be the most that a very hygiene-conscious person has to empty out. I can go up to 15 times a day- especially when I drink lots.

I've been taking Questran powder mixed in with juice (1/2 sachets 3 times a day) and Imodium. Seems to be helping- they have thickened up the output to about a stew consistency and now am down to about 8 empties a day.

My empties seem to be worst at night into morning then thicken into the evening and back to watery at night. This makes me fear it is the dreaded "D" but there are many factors having these things and it could be anything. It is 5:23pm est right now and my output is a good consistency, pudding like, I here toothpase would be like the "perfect" ouput. it seems to go like - water to formed water, apple sauce like, pudding, back to water. My surgein said dont worry, he was very upbeat in the MOST bland way possible, in other words he wasnt very convincing, but im told this is how surgeons are.. who knows. I can suggest trying to eat some potatoe chips, or a banana b4 your more watery times, or other more thcking foods. I find potatoe chips thicken it up good.. sometimes though they do nothing, banana's are good, kez helped me out with idea's, masrhmellows, bolied potatoes, rice, bread are all things that could help thicken that shi*t up... Good luck, im new to this, so I might not be the most accurate.
Cheers

Do you put any sort of sweeteners in your tea and coffee?
I ask this because on saturday eve i had to come home early from a night out,because my bag started to fill up every 10 min or so with dirty water!I had a bit of a disaster as i have a one piece and as i tried to lower the spout of bag slowly down into the loo it was so full it went all over the loo seat.(in the pub)and a small amount went on my clothes.thankfully i was wearing black!
The only thing i had different that day was a very small bar of chocolate on the way home from work.and the main ingredient was maltitol a sweetener.I'm usualy fine with ordinary chocolate

hi,
my dad is diabetic and has a bag...anything he eats that has any sugar alcohols to sweeten it (like maltitol) causes him diarrea and gas problems, especially ice cream.

I never realised, but bile salts can actually cause diarrhoea such as we are experiencing. They an prescribe a bile salt seqrestrant that effectively soaks them up, and the diarrhoea is reduced. This is what Questran is.
