Had lots of D after FMT

Postby hht7899 » Thu Nov 01, 2018 7:14 pm

Hello all -

So I had my FMT this morning. I was able to hold it a little over an hour after the procedure before I had to go. I went twice at the hospital, both just watery D. When I got home I had three more rounds of D, no pain whatsoever, it just feels like the D I had with the prep last night and this morning.

Is it normal to go that many times after the procedure is over? Calling my doc in the am, of course.

You were pumped full of liquid and it bathes the inside of your colon with the seed of good bacteria.
What goes in must come out!
The seed is sown though as some remains.
It's normal.

Have you been given anything to slow down the transit after FMT? Usually Imodium is given to help retain the slurry inside.

Your laxative prep could still have been working too. But, the stool that was deposited should still have coated your colon even on its way out.
