Diarrhea : There is a lot that can be going on here. Your new ongoing diarrhea for 2 mo can be from laxative-induced effect. But if off laxatives, the diarrhea can be from overflow incontinence, or infection (eg, c diff infection), or ibs-diarrhea type. Other not-mentioned processes could be going on, so i recommend seeing a GI md and getting a good physical exam as well (including a digital rectal exam).
