Right Hemicolectomy

Last updated: October 2020

I had a Right Hemicolectomy two years ago for large non cancerous polyp in lower cecum. Had 17 inches of right colon, 22 lymph nodes,and part of ileum out. I have had bouts of diarrhea and gas since. It gets better, nearly normal and then the diarrhea starts. Two weeks ago Dr. put me on Questran powder and the bloating (gas) was horrible. Diarrhea clears some but I can’t take the gas. Then he wanted me to take Bentyl. Don’t have framing and pain. Did not get it. Anyone have any suggestions?
