    Procedure or Surgery: Due to the heriditery nature of my cancer, I decided to have a total colectomy. My wonderful surgeon directely connected my small intestine to my rectum. No colostomy was needed. However, learning to live with diahrea 24/7 was a process. With full recover, chemo complete and medication adjustments, I now lead a very normal life. But it was a process that took about 3 years before I would say I felt normal again.

      Terri, can I ask what kind of meds do you have for the diahrea? I go 5-6 times a day, for 3-4 days, then I don't go for about 2-3 days. I have tried several OTC drugs, but nothing helps. I would just like to get some regularity to my system. Any advice??
