I have had a lot of diaherra after my colostomy. What am I

Customer Question

I have had a lot of diaherra after my colostomy. What am I eating wrong?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I have discussed it and told him what I am eating and drinking and he has suggested alernatives. They aren't working either. Seems to be in what I drink, but I need to know "what can I drink" that won't turn into diareea. I take no prescription meds at all. Only Tylenol for arthritis In my knees.
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I take acetamorphin (sp) one in morning and one in evening. Otherwise I take vitamins and garlic daily.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not that I know of. I am actually 90 years old and my health is considered excellent for this age. I no longer drink or eat any dairy products but many other foods start diarheea. I want to find a juice I can drink.
