Re: Why do I go to the bathroom as soon as I eat
As was my experience, I had rapid transit of food along the digestive tract as evidenced by a 20 minute Small Bowel results. I had had long standing GI issues and until I saw the last GI doctor (#8 for me) I assumed it was IBS related. Well after a host of tests, it was found that my small intestines had suffered an insult to the villi due to longtime Antiinflammatory use. It has taken about 4 years of no lactose, no fatty or fried foods and an antiacid med (Acihphex) to make the situation better. I too could eat and the food remain unchanged throughout the digestive tract, such as whole foods appearing unchanged or medications that passed through the tract intact.
I would see a GI doctor who specializes in IBS or rapid transit. There are ways to slow the food down. I know I feel much better now that I have the diarrhea and rapid transit more manageable. I still have periodic episodes, but not the constant pain, cramping and diarrhea I did at its worst. I also take prophylactic Immodium each night ranging from a half a tab to 6 tabs depending on the previous day's bowel activity. I do hope you find a great GI doctor, as the constant pain and irritation of the digestive tract can lead to other problems, i.e. weight loss, loss of nutrients, etc. This was my experience. I do hope you get some answers and some relief.
