Had surgery 10 weeks ago for an ileostomy. I'm desperate. It is not working right. I am backed up all the time and have to stick a tube in an irrigate. Doctor never had a constipated ileostomy. Help please need to know anyone w Chrons have an iliostmy that doesn't output right?

That doesn't sound normal. Get in touch with your stoma nurse or your surgeon and tell them what's happening. I had an ileostomy for two years; it would occasionally get backed up and then clear itself after a few minutes/hours. It's normal to occasionally get backed up with an ileostomy, but not all the time - you need tests to find out what's causing it.

Also pay a visit to the Ostomies board. On page 2 there is a topic by SolomonSeal - he had similar problems to you and it turned out to be a mechanical issue. He got relief through a surgical revision to the stoma.
