I believe I have given the wrong impression to you. I don't have an ileostomy.
I have had a colectomy. I still have my small bowel and rectum.
My problem is when I eat I only have 10min to 2hrs., before I have to go to the bathroom.
I hope you have some suggestions of what I could eat that would stay with me longer periods of time.
I don't go out to dinner because of this, I guess; ( I am bathroom shy)
I don't feel comfortable using other bathrooms for that reason. I have a small bag packed with; extra panties, wipes, commode seat covers, pads plastic bag. I would be covered if needed to.
I feel embarrassed.
I would love to be able to go out to lunch with the girls or out to dinner with my husband.
If you know anything that I could try to eat to help me, please tell me.
My body is also very weak because, I can't keep enough nutrition in me to give me fuel.
Thanks for any advise
