Since creation of my J-pouch in 2012 my output has been mainly liquid and has resulted in my regularly having to go to hospital for IV fluids. Nothing slowed my bowel down, not even my Fentanyl patches and oxynorm I am on for associated arthritic pain.
My pain specialist prescribed my Nortriptyline to help with the pain and it has had the positive side effect of thickening my output to porridge consistency and I have not been dehydrated since. I take 30mg per day.
Just thought this might be of interest to anyone with a fast throughput.
