Re: duodenum ulcer
I had a perforated duodenum ulcer in 1975. They took me into emergency surgery and did a procedure known as a Billroth 2. They removed about 60-70% of my stomach and duodenum, plus nearly half of the small intestine.
I now have IBS and suffer chronic diarrhea. I am a Chronic Pain Patient and on Social Security because of it.
I don't have thin stools, but I do have loose stools and that is being on pain medication and using Metamucil for fiber and bulk.
