Hey y'all ... appreciate the suggestions.
My doctor told me to go to the hospital tonight, but really, there's no sense in doing so (right now). I am basing this upon my urine color (yellow / straw), and upon the fact that I felt decent over the weekend when I had a 36-hour reprieve from diarrhea... allowing me to move around a little bit.
Combined with the feeding formula (about 1000 calories per day), plus oral sustenance (applesauce, egg white, white rice, watermelon juice, blueberry juice, gummy bears), I am taking in about 1500 calories. So I'm not losing any more weight at this time.
I am also getting 1.2 liters of water per day, which is quit enough.
I think what's hindering me most is the lack of vitamin absorption / bad gut flora, and the lack of sunlight exposure.
All of this began because I took Milk of Magnesia around October 1st, then had progressively loosening stools after the fact - until a month later, the bouts of diarrhea began.
It's likely the Milk of Magnesia wiped out my intestinal flora, while also unblocking my colon - so now this high fiber feeding formula is going right through me. At least, that's what I think is going on. Test results do not indicate anything in particular. And doctor's (and their ilk) never know anything, in regards to my past and current physical condition(s)... basically, I've got to solve everything myself without assistance (besides suggestions from Phoenix Rising, etc. and so forth).
Luckily I understand things and am able to deduce based upon baselines, history, and happenstance. Perhaps I require black magic, or divine intervention!
It's just that nothing is working, besides fasting.
Probiotics, sour kraut, nor Imodium seem to be helping all that much.
They (someone) is working on changing the formula back to the old one. Maybe that helps. Less fiber. Perhaps a key ingredient is causing intestinal upset (with the Liquid Hope).
In any case, I've been worse than this. And the hospital people wouldn't even give me an IV, much less anything else. They'd simply recommend I visit with my G.I. (who won't, or cannot, do anything in particular to alleviate my suffering).
I think I'm going to do a large(ish) amount of codeine this evening, in order to slow down the intestinal processing. Not too large, just more than I would usually take. There are schools of thought that support this type of action.
Thanks ... and I'll let you know if anything comes to a head.
P.S. the garage living is okay (comfortable and warm), no SSI yet (of course not), my case manager is absent / not helping resolve issues
