@lucky1038 I did not have an ileostomy but have had diarrhea for 4 years and also took 8 diphenoxylate a day and still had diarrhea. Went to Mayo in July and had an endoscopy and sigmoidascope. Found I have microscopic colitis and they put me on Budesonide. Been taking as prescribed for 8 weeks w/2 to left and now have normal stools.
