Unhappy Really tired of soupy pullups!!!

Dec 23 2011, Dr removed all 5ft of my colon due to total constipation from a stoned colon. Dr didn't want to do a ostomy bag right away he thought this surgery would help. Im now below 100lbs I can't eat solid foods and haven't been able too for over a year in a half I am only on liquids. I take Imodium, benefiber, and lomotil 4x a day and still have watery painful stools if thats what u want to call them. I was pain free pretty much and all this pain has engolfed me with the increase of the watery stools which r 10 - 13x a day the meds do not help at all. I am suppose to go back in April 4th for more surgery for a stolie bag. I am 46 yrs old and am scared again I wear xl childrens pullups now , I am scared I won't ever be able to eat solid foods and enjoy them anymore , Im afraid of never gaining weight back and ppl calling me annarexic like they do. I only can go to Drs and back. I've spent over a yr in bed from this. My life really doesn't exist outside of my bedroom, i can't sit my bum is either rashy or pressure sores. Please if someone has words of encouragement or what I am to expect with a stolie bag let me know soon
