My husband had his take-down surgery 08/21/2013. He's still having trouble with frequency and consistency. Currently taking 1 Imodium 4 times a day (just increased from 3) and Citrucel in a small amount of water 2 - 3 times a day. He has lately been taking the Imodium and Citrucel together... is this ok? He goes to the bathroom anywhere between 10 and 17 times per 24 hr period (sometimes more, rarely less), it's about 50/50 watery and thicker. Also, how long should he wait to drink water before and after taking Imodium & Citrucel? We're having a hard time finding the magic combination to help regulate him somewhat. He's eating bananas, fiber cereal and other bulking foods. Just curious what works for others. Any help or input is appreciated!
