I had my ileostomy reversal 5 weeks ago and up until now everything has been fine. Last week I started to get a lot of pressure in the abdomen and my bowel movements started to increase from 4-6 times/day to about 6-10/day. So, I contacted my doctor and he placed me on a drug called lomotil to help reduce the amount of times I move my bowels, but my stomach pains are getting worse, it nothing but pressure from my abdomen to my bottom. Has anyone else experience this? Should I be worried?
