Bubba, I read one of your posts above where you list the foods you eat. Could it be you are eating a lot of carbs and it's contributing to frequency and burn?  The Ensure drink is high carb and sugar; white bread is pure carb; jelly is pure sugar; and milk, crackers and cereal are very high in carbs. Anything made with white flour or uses starch as a food thickener is high carb. Check the ingredients' label on each product. A good guideline might be 5 grams of carbs per serving.

If you need to keep your food bland for now while you resolve the frequency and burn, try peeling a zucchini, slicing it and broiling with olive oil and salt. The flesh of the zucchini is soluble fibre, will help thicken your output, and has nutrients. Switch your white bread for sourdough bread or rye bread spread with peanut butter?  Scrambled eggs for breakfast for the protein?  Maybe make steel cut oatmeal in a slow cooker for breakfast instead of cereal. You can make a few days worth.  Oatmeal is a carb, but it's a different type of carb, it's low glycemic and has good fibre so the sugar spike is not so extreme.  Chicken or tuna salad, open faced, for lunch with peeled cucumber sticks?  Brown rice cooked in lots of store bought broth, enough to last a week?  Whole wheat pasta tossed with soft cooked vegetables and chicken or beef?

Every Sunday I cook a week's worth of meals for my family and we add as we go to keep it interesting. Try to avoid raw vegetables or fruit skins for now, eat the flesh because soluble fibre will help your output, as opposed to insoluble fibre that can hurt coming out. When you are healed and need to maintain your skin try a small jar of Zincofax, a gentle cream made for baby bums.
