First question, why was it done?
Resection of this area can result in chronic loose stools. This is thought to be from bile salts making it to the colon rather than being re-absorbed appropriately. The fact that a portion of the terminal ileum is also resected is important as this piece of small intestine is crucial for the absorption of bile salts. Bile salt binders such as cholestyramine are usually very effective for treating this. By taking hese edications, the residual bile salts stick to the resin rather than irritating the colon.
I had previous surgeries and had troublesome adhensions..I was due to have the adhensions separated, however, i was left with the bowel resection.and very loose stools ever since.
Thank you for your reply
Losing your ileocecal valve sounds rather bizarre if the operation was for a lysis of adhesions if there was no Crohn's disease present. Generally, adhesions would not affect that area of the colon since the ascending colonis a retroperitoneal structure. The recommendations given previously would still hold though.
