Sorry to be polluting the board with such topics of late, but I'm having another issue I'd like to hold court on... I've been having to go #2 up to 8 times a day lately. Obviously, as the day wears on not much comes out, but it still feels relatively urgent. Having to go so frequently leaves me sore. I've also been waking up earlier and earlier to go. Last might my body woke me up at 1 am to go #2. It woke me up a few more times before my usual 6:30 alarm. Does any of this have to do with the fact my gallbladder was removed 6 weeks ago? In general, stools have been a lot looser since the surgery. Occasionally I even have outright diarrhea, something that's never been a problem for me since the DS. I long for the days of going 2-3 times in the morning and that's it. Any thoughts?
