26 times is an awful lot. So sorry.
What kind of diet are you on? I've heard of someone in your situation going off all foods for a few days and just going with aloe vera gel + pomegranate juice for some sustenance, and it seemed to quiet her gut/colon quite a bit, it bought her some time until she decided with her doctors what her next step would be. But the bottom line is you have to do what you feel is right for you, and listen to your doctors.
But it sounds like you're suffering unbearable pain...
