A 44-year-old member asked:

I had a colostomy reversal. I have never gotten back to the same type of bowel movements--it has been fairly mushy since. Is this normal?

Yes, in most cases.: Usually patients with a colostomy have had part of their colon removed. The colon is responsible for reabsorbing water from the stool. If you have less colon, then you will reabsorb less water and your stool will be softer and less formed in character. If you are not having any other symptoms besides the mushy stools, don't be alarmed. See your doctor if you have other symptoms though.

No: No, gh does not increase testosterone production but if weight loss does occur from gh therapy (gh induces lipolysis), your sex hormone binding globulin will rise which in turn will raise your total testosterone level.
