Coming out too quickly...?

Hello,

I still feel slightly embarrassed discussing my poop on here but I just had one a minute ago and it seemed to have all my Pentasa granules in it...is this normal? Or does this mean I'm not absorbing them properly?

I've been on them since July 2011 and never noticed this before.
It is definitely them and not food/seeds as I'm on liquids only right now.

Thanks! x

I asked this question in hospital when on Pentasa at the beginning and was told by consultant that its fine, even if it goes through your system really fast, it is absorbed in the stomach so it has still been effective. Odd when it happens to you at first though !
