I had a small bowel resection close to two years ago. This was because I had a hysterectomy due to cancer. During that surgery, my small bowel was punctured two places. No one realize this until I became septic and nearly died. With all that said, I have been taking Questran and txt of Lomtril. This has controlled diarrhea. About three weeks ago, I started to become constipated. I have cut out the Lomtril. I take 3 stool softeners a day and increased my fiber. This has not helped a lot. The stools are hard and small and mucus covers it. I am seeing s gastroenologist in November. Any ideas why this change or what this could mean? Thx
