Having uncontrolable diarrhea for over 3 months is concerning enough to see a doctor.  If you are loosing weight and or your diarrhea does not look normal I would definately get in to see a gasteorologist, even if it is just for a council.  It might be something that can be controlled.

You could have a parasite, this happen to my husband that had diarrhea for 3 months and he went and they did a stool sample and he had a parasite, they will give you a pill to take to get rid of it, he was fine in a week.  Good luck.

I had a colonoscopy 8 months ago and have had diarrhea ever since.  At first it was just loose stools but for the past week it has been total liquid.  I have cramping occasionally.  I started taking a very good probiotic 2 months ago.  It has slowed the "D" down a good bit, but last week it has come back with a vengence.  Before I had the colonoscopy, if I took 1 immodium I would be constipated for about 2 weeks.  Yesterday, I took 3 and this morning the "D" was back.  I am a school teacher and school starts next week.  I am at my wits end.  My doctor doesn't seem too concerned about it.  Anybody know if it is associated with the colonoscopy, AND a natural remedy for the "D"?

I do not have an answer for you but I am having the samew experience.
I also had a colonoscopy a few months ago and have dealt with diarrhea type symtoms (symptoms) ever since. Ironically, I had the colonoscopy due to long term IBS-C. I am also a teacher, so I completely empathize with your concerns about starting the new school year.

I've been having the same problem, I just haven't tested for it yet. It also doesn't help that I haven't had my period for that same amount of time as well...It's like a horrible 2-in-1!
