No colon

Hi guys i had my colon removed 2 years ago due to chronic constipation. My small intestine was connected to my rectum. I now live with going to the the toilet 15-20 times a day. I am only 40 kilos and cannot put weight on. I am constantly tired and have no energy its really making me very miserable. I have been to my consultant and he is referring me to a surgeon and a stoma nurse im really scared and i dont no what to do. Its such big thing im only 22 and its messing with my social life and also in my relationship. Please help.

Thankyou Roxie.

L-glutamine may help your absorption.  Are you anemic?  Are you taking recommended supplements?
