Suggest Treatment For Chronic Diarrhea Post A Partial Colectomy
Please give some more details.
Thank you for the query.
Does she have ileostomy or colostomy? Is the stomy created due to bowels obstruction? Is it temporal or permanent? Did she have colon cancer? If so in what stage? Has she tried loperamide treatment?
This is a typical ileostomy symptom.
Well, as she has ileostomy, it is going to be very hard to control the stool liquidity. She may try any available diarrhea medicines including Cholestyramine, Loperamide, Lomotil etc. But the effects can be not satisfactory. And for sure she wont be able to gain any weight back, until the ileostomy wont be closed back.
