Hello, thank you for your time. My abdomen swells after I defecate, whether I have diarrhea or normal bowel movements. I have lost a lot of weight in the past year but still have a distended stomach. It is not fat, because I can still flex my abs into a reasonable six pack. I did have a misdiagnosis a few years back (they said Urinary Tract Infection and it was prostate swelling due to
Sudafed misuse, which caused a terrible amount of pain and distension when they had me aggravate it by taking prostate-enlarging pills and drinking plenty of water) and I have had diarrhea for most of the past thirteen years. Doctors I saw didn't have answers and I am living in an area notorious for its poor medical services. I appreciate your advice.
