Has anyone experienced bouts of diarrhea or an issue with the bowel post procedure?I had the procedure in April and am in a wheelchair 24/7 since breaeking my leg nine years ago when I was 26. Usually I am constipated or have trouble going but around the beginning of June I started to get diarrhea... Now it seems to have leveled off, but there seems to be a change, and it's not meds either, I've cut back, with everything...
Have you talked to your doctor? MS causes constipation due to a slowness of motility through the intestines. I don't know how CCSVI treatment would lead to diarrhea, but I wouldn't rule it out.
If your system is out of whack and you might benefit from medication from your doctor or probiotics or whatever is commonly done about long-term diarrhea. Fluid intake would be doubly important, because we need fluids to keep the jugulars flowing and diarrhea can cause dehydration.
