Re: Diarrhea after stopping narcotics?
I was sipping gingerale, eating popcicles, and just basically existing on that because every time I ate anything it went straight through me immediately.
If you are able to keep any food in without it going straight through you may want to stick to just small amounts of things like chicken noodle soup, plain rice, plain mashed potatoes. Basically the bland foods- but again just small amounts. Eat just a little and see how it does. If it stays and doesn't create problems then it's a step in the right direction.
Many times people tend to eat a large amount because they are so hungry and that creates even more problems. It doesn't allow your intestines to recouperate.
You really need to stay hydrated so again sipping on gingerale and eating popcicles helps. Gatorade is good too because it will help with your electrolytes.
I'm sorry things got worse for you, but just try small amounts of the above listed foods and as soon as you can start the immodium.
I'm sending wishes for quick healing your way. It's miserable dealing with this kind of problem. I have IBS and when it flares up- whew! It can go on for weeks.
Oh- you can also try to get a little yogurt in your system as well because it helps replenish the "healthy" bacteria in your intestines.
