This condition makes me have diahrea 24/7. thus I have about 15 bowel movements a day. What I want to really know is, does this condition and problem allow me to absorb the pain medication or am I loosing most of the medicine in the constant bowel movements?
I only have 3 feet of small bowel, how does this effect the way pain medication pills work?

No, I am constantly running out of medicine before I should. The reason I asked the question is because I take enough medicine to kill a normal person to get the relief from the pain. My friends that take the same even say I should not be able to take that. That is why I was wondering if I was getting all of it pr just wasting most of it my bowel movements.
