I lost my colon due to being septic. I had daily intense pain coupled with diarrhea and fissures. I take medication as needed to decrease diarrhea and pain. This medication was a game changer for me and has allowed me to live a pretty normal life. I am not in the medical field but if you have any questions you can email me at [email protected] Best of luck! Roy
