How can I survive WITHOUT an ileocecal valve?
During my 2009 appendectomy, the surgeon also removed my ileocecal valve. Now I have to learn to live without it, but am unable to find anyone—in or out of the medical profession—who can suggest ways of treating this unusual condition.
By experimenting, I have found ways to improve matters, but still am saddled with a digestive system that now swings from constipation to diarrhea. My tentative results have shown me how to avoid the diarrhea half of the problem, but not the constipation part.
Does anyone know of someone who has had experience with this problem?
