diarrhea after hysterectomy
Im 57 and had a di vinci robotic assisted hysterectomy 11 days ago. Ive had diarrhea ever since. Taken immodium which produces a soft loose stool then next day diarrhea is back. No blood, some mucus, sometimes green, sometimes brown. Im eating from the BRAT diet. Drinking pedratic electrolytes, lots of water, taking prescription strength potassium and calicum. Not taking any pain meds as my stomach does not like them. Every other day I take immodum. I had a colonscopy in June 09 and had 1 polyp removed. Do you have any idea what I can do to stop this diarrhea? I dont believe I am dehydrated as I urinate light color and often.

Hi,
One of the possible causes is antibiotic associated diarrhea ( due to the antibiotics that you would have taken after the surgery).
Take metronidazole and probiotics to control diarrhea.
