Hi @daveswife no only paracetamol - he is very odd in that he had a laparotomy and Hartman’s but only had paracemol post op for pain! We have the surgical review next week will ask them then :x::x:

Hi @HH, yes it should firm up but it does very much depend upon what he is eating: a low fibre diet, if he is not on one may help. In addition, Loperamide as mentioned above.Tim’s stoma nurses should be able to advise. Take very good care both of you, Kim :x::x:
