I have a neo badder that was made from small intestine, 2 1/2 years ago I was advised, early on, that mucous would continue to be generated by this peice of intestine, but that the amount would diminish with time. The volume has not decreased, but the amount of mucouse does change from day to day or from days to days. What causes this irregular pattern? I have not been able to determine any changes in my diet or acctivities that would account for it. When the flow is heavy I have difficulties voiding, and must resort to cathaterization. When the flow is light I have no difficulties voiding. Is there any diet or routine that might minimize the amount of mucous that flows, without causing other, adverse, effects?
