Hi gfances, my Mom is the one who orig posted about her grandson having surgery. I’m her daughter & Mom of 8 yr old that just had the surgery. She printed your response for me & I was very interested in your story. Thank you so much for your info. Especially about the fissure/cut from wiping & chronic diarrhea. This is a horrible thing to go through. My son currently has an Ileostomy & we don’t have to worry about that yet. In about 4-6 months, the surgeon will do a take down & connect everything inside again. At that point I realize he could have diarrhea for a long time. They said hopefully after a year, his BM’s should be more normal. I can’t imagine someone having to deal with chronic diarrhea for the rest of their lives, but I know many do. Do any over the counter anti diarrheal medications work for you?
