explosive post-menopausal diarrhea
I am a woman, now post-menopausal. When I was younger I would poop every two days. Later, pre menopause, I developed chronic diarrhea, which according to a dozen different top specialists, was of unknown cause -- but to me it seemed, in the early stages, when it was not so frequent, to be connected to my periods.
But soon it became daily, and then several times daily. Then, post menopause, due to gall stones I had the gall bladder removed. There is still no change. Watery, explosive poop after almost every meal. I would just love to get my poop firm again. What can I do? Please help.
I'm sorry, but there is little that I, lowly Poonurse, could tell you that dozens of the countries top specialists haven't been able to figure out. I mean, I'm good, but not that good.
Keep on searching for answers. Good luck to you.
Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.
Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.
