How much fluid is taking in a day? One thing I noticed was before I even think of drinking anything.. I must eat something to absorb it... If I drink fluids with my meals.. very watery consistency... I eat then I drink.. I also take citricul w/ water twice a day... Once in the morning and once after my last meal. Immodium you can take up to 8x a day w/ or w/o water (your choice). Immodium wasn't working for me, so I was prescribed lomotil and it helps with consistency for the most part and if I'm having a real bad day... My surgeon said it would be ok to take a few Immodiums with it.. and when I mix the two I have no problems whatsoever. It might be worth a shot to ask about lomitil. I had my takedown on 8/01/13 and believe me I understand and frequency and even night time leakages. But I have noticed the last two weeks have been great as far as these problems go. Maybe I'm finally over the hump as they say. Keep moving forward, it will get better soon enough.
