How often are you going? Some diarrhea is normal until you transition to solid foods (liquids in, liquids out!). I think the priority right now would be lots of fluids to make sure you don't become dehydrated.

try to get lots of water with electrolyes (potassium and calcium) or at least some gatorade. It will pass. But it does take a while. Mine didn't slow down until I ate softies.

Ditto to what the above posters said. We sometimes give banana flakes to patients with diarrhea, so maybe some pureed banana would be helpful. I'm surprised your doc won't give you some Lomotil! Go get something OTC (pepto bismol or whatever)- screw your doc on this one.

Yes you MUST keep yourself hydrated! I know it probably feels counter-intuitive (liquid in, liquid out), but you really need to replace it. The first week post-op absolutely SUCKS (read my posts!), but it WILL get better. Just push those fluids, get some pepto bismol, eat some pureed banana, and buy some new undies. :001_rolleyes:

I also had same problem, it seemed my stool consistency followed the consistency of the current diet. Once I moved on to mushies it followed suit now that I am eating pretty normally it is back to normal.

What do you eat in mushies? Its 9 days ago maybe I can eat bananas or something else mushies???

Well, like I said, going to softies helped but yesterday I had to eat some blueberries to get the pipeline moving again. Things got a little bound up after a couple days of meats. But, it was soooo much better than diahrrea all the time. Really, it will pass. It just feels like it won't.

Get some pediatric electrolyte supplements. Here in the US it's called Pedialyte, or some Gatorade. If you can have yogurt, eat yogurt because the good bacteria in the yogurt will help neutralize your stomach bacteria.

Right now, it's a liquids in, liquids out. Use baby wipes on your bum to prevent irritation. It does get better once you get to full liquids and mushies.

Hi, I have been taking Fiber Choice with calcium chewables. One a day and it has helped check with your doctor is it is okay.
