I recall you posting about your surgery and difficulties afterwards; you should have been OK by now.Â Â
This is not normal.Â Â Not sure the reason for your colostomy, but reguardless, it is not normal.Â Â Have you followed up with your physician?Â Â I would recommend doing that....a gastroenterologist or your surgeon should do some diagnostics to find the problem.
Meanwhile, I would suggest keeping your stool on the softer side : avoid high fiber, drink plenty of fluids, and consider stool softeners.
Hope you post on the outcome.Â Â We'll all learn something.
