I have a temporary ileostomy and have 3 questions.
1. Can I take Immodium or lotomil to slow down bms? I want to see test myself on it before i get reversed in a few months' time. I can have quite waterly bms depending on what i eat, plus also it fills up at night even though i dont eat late, and i dont want to be up at night .
2. What can i wear over the bag to stop it getting wet and for added security when swimming?
3. My bag fills up with air overnight and is fit to burst in the morning, and fills up with air a lot. is that normal? i took wind capsules but that doesnt help at all. any advice?
