I have to ask the folks who have an ileostomy if they ever get dehydrated quickly.
I can get a cold or flu or be out side in the heat and become dehydrated in no time.
If I have mostly water in my bag and get up 3-5 times in the night to empty I can tell I am getting sick and will start to feel week and dehydrated and my voice gets week and I have to make sure I hydrate myself.
This has put me in the ER 2 times in ten years but I have many times were I pulled myself out of dehydration.
Does any one have a similar situation? I plan on consulting this with my specialist my next appt.
