ive had an S Pouch replaced by a J Pouch in May of 2014 and am now healed enough to finally be given the green light to talk to doctors about getting me on a waiting list for reconnection. I still have "lots of small intestine" says my doctor who did the j pouch surgery. The time factor for my food to empty into my illeostomy is so rapid that it scares me sometimes...... under an hour at times! I have to eat very frequently and suffer from many side effects as a result of the quick food exit. I didn't like taking all the Imodium they had me on and stopped months ago. What can I do to slow things down so that I have better absorpsion ?
