not digesting mezavant

Posted , 4 users are following.

I had a bm yesterday morning and noticed something that looked like a little piece of a popped balloon, I knew I hadn't eaten one so investigated further and saw a big white hard lump and then figured out it was one of my mezavant pills that doesn't seem to have been digested - just wondering if this has happened to anyone else and is something to worry about? I took the pills after dinner at about 8pm the night before and this was at 11am the next morning.

    Normally pills get disolved by then. I had bleeding prior to changing my diet. During the time I used to discharge pieces of bloody puss that looked like corn mixed with mucos and blood. I asume it was pieces of inflamed intestine. 

    After elliminating gluten, no more bleeding.

    Hi Nicole

      It took over 3 weeks. Started with reduced blood in the stool, followed by gassing and frequent travel to toilet / discharge of mucus covered pellets. Finally stool was back to normal within 4 weeks. I started with avoiding bread, weat bix, milk, and pasta. As replacement, all rice products, e.g. rice noodles, gluten free weat bix / noodles, and lactose free milk.

      It worked for me.
