Reply to "Slowing things down"

I have a Jpouch as well and I have the same issues after I eat. To slow things down my Dr. Prescribed Lomotil 2.5 mg tabs. Works wonders! I take 1-2 tabs before I go to any event in public ike dinning sports events and slows things down great. I had no luck with Imodium even 6 tabs at once.

I have noticed the higher fat content, sugars and how processed the food is that I consume will determine my out put, consistency and frequency. Unfortunately for me raw and fresh cooked vegetables is brutal on my pouch. I haven't been able to eat a salad since my connection.....what I would do for a fresh salad.  Instead I drink a Origins multi-Shake blended with dehydrated fruit, spinach and broccoli (same nutrition value as fresh) once i gave fresh vegetables up it helped a ton. 

As far as jumping and physical activity making me go more frequently I have no issues. I do struggle sleeping on my sides and stomach as it will make me use the restroom within minutes. I have to strictly lay on my back.....flipping weird!
