    I get the Tincture through my Dr.  It's a controlled substance and expensive, but it works.

      I had bad gas after my bowel reconstruction surgery, that lasted about a year.  I also got very bad diarrhea, I ended up taking Opium Tincture and it took care of the diarrhea, it also helped with the gas. Hope this helps

        I had uterine cancer and radiation and yes I have scar tissue too.  It's been 25 years since the radiation.  You probably have scar tissue.  It happens with the radiation. You vagina also shortens up, and so talk with your Dr. about that as well. Patty

          I absolutely understand where you are coming from.  The anxiety I get before I find the bathrooms is unreal.  I love traveling to NYC but the bathroom situation there is a joke.  In a city of 9 million peop there's like 8 bathrooms! Patty

            Opium is a narcotic but the tincture removes the stuff that makes you addicted or getting high.  The only side effect I get is that I'm always tired.  It also helps me so that I can still work.  I dread the day I may end up on a "bag".

              Eileen- I feel for you. I had bowel reconstruction surgery and things have been much better, but I have to watch what I eat, and I am also taking Opium tincture, 3X a day which helps with the diarrhea.  I know where every bathroom is in my town as well as other places I have visited. My prayers are with you. Patty

                I've been through radiation and yes fatigue and sleeping alot is normal.  I was always tired when I went through the radiation but it went away when I completed radiation.  Hope this helps.

                      Yes diet is important, dairy is an absolute no no.  But I had bowel reconstruction surgery 2 years ago and I did not have to have a colostomy.  I know how you feel though.  Constantly worried about having an accident, (which the Opium Tincture has stopped me from having).  I now have plenty of time to make it to the bathroom without the worry of an embarrasing accident.  It is something that ...
