Diarrhea after total and selective vagotomy
The rate of evacuation of water from the stomach was found to be significantly increased by vagotomy and drainage procedure. The rate was not affected by the type of drainage procedure or vagotomy. The rate of emptying in patients who develop diarrhea after vagotomy and drainage procedure was significantly faster than that in patients who were symptom-free after operation.
