New member here...I had a TAH, BSO, bladder sling 12/30/03. Three days after surgery, I began with the diarrhea and it is still continuing. I have had all the medical tests (colonoscopy, barium enema, stool tests, blood tests, CT Scans, bone marrow biopsy, lactose intolerance breath test...you name it, I've had it) and all they say is IBS-D, take imodium and lactaid. Three months after surgery, I was diagnosed Hypothyroid and put on Levoxyl and Cytomel. I am also taking Prevacid for GERD. I was also put on HRT - estrogen patch and testosterone gel. I am wondering if there is a correlation between having the surgery, getting IBS, becoming hypothyroid and going into surgical menapause. Has anyone else experienced this?All the imodium did for me was bind me up. I would take it in the morning and evening and would wake up in the middle of the night having pain and D 4-5 times, getting little to no sleep. I cannot eat any raw fruits or veggies. I stick to a low carb/high protien diet...still can't lose weight due to the thyroid problem (?). They up my HRT then the thyroid goes out of whack. They up the thyroid meds, the HRT goes out of whack. It's a lose/lose situation!I'm in the bathroom upwards of 10 times with D, mostly in the morning. I'm going to try adding calcium to see if that helps. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've had to quit my job because of this problem, I rarely leave the house anymore and the anxiety is horrible!This is a great site. Thanks for any advice.
