Thank you all for taking the time to read through my post and replying. Much appreciated.
For the first time since surgery, I only had to go to the toilet twice last night. And I am certain it was by no coincidence. Peanut butter is underrated! Forget meds, peanut butter is simply a must have. I'll go with eating some in the morning as well, it could slow things down further during the day too. The docs left me with nothing to go by yet this forum... pure gold!
@Scott F Great idea on trying out husk in a small dose. Regarding Lomotil, I prefer waiting on trying too many things until I find a diet that works for me, which is not easy to say the least.
@Winterberry I do realize it is new, which is something I've been told over and over again. It is the unknown as to how long I can expect for things to get normal that bugs me. That is why I was hoping to give some insight as to how long it took for some of you guys to reach the point where you went "alright this is as well as it gets"
