I’ll try the Keifer, currently taking a probiotic too. Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the advice, no I don’t have any infections. I believe I am improving, I was just wondering about the diet and bowel movements and when things get back to normal. I thought two weeks and good to go but realized it is going to take a little while longer to heal up. Thanks again.

No I don’t, it was elective procedure because of the many painful reoccurring attacks. Took out approximately 5-6” of the sigmoid colon. Thanks for the link.

Hello, @rdmishio here I’m new to the site. I’m 45 male and had a sigmoid colon resection done about 4 1/2 weeks ago. On a low residual diet, having off and on diarrhea. Having hard time eating much, down 15 lbs. About how long on average does it take for your digestive system to get back to normalcy if there is one? Thanks again.
