sorry guys, this isnt funny, lol.
 
So i woke up today with a stomach bug or something and had to empty my bag like 4 times in a row.  Well by the time i got to the third empty it was complete liquid and by the fourth it was gray liquid!  whats that about?  I have never seen that!
After that it was clear, it had no smell, and i couldnt see it at all.  Looked like water.
Im just curios as to what that could have been?

How did the rest of your day go? Do you feel like you have a bug?..fever, headache etc. Is there pain and is your belly distended? My son had a partial obstruction and the intestine made a lot of "water" to try to wash away the obstruction. It had some color though...not completely clear.

I would not let this go on too long with out checking with your doctor.

You probably have a lot more experience with this though than I do.

Hope you are feeling better soon

well...if you are not nauseous than I'd think bug and your system has flushed itself...if you have pain and nausea than I'd say partial obstruction:(

How are you feeling today?

I have only had that happen 2 or 3 times (over 10 years) and I usually think it's a bug but then assume it was a partial ob since it goes away so fast!

i was throwing up too, with pain, but i had been at a friends house where herkids had just been sick, and my little boy got sick yesterday, so its just a bug, ick!
although i will say, having loose poo with a bag is much easier than the old fashioned way!
 
So if you have an upset stomach and go a bunch without eating much, does it usually turn gray?

ok so now im better and all,but the very end of my stoma looks like its pruned up, you know like how your fingers look when they have been in water for too long.
Could it have something to do with having been sick? i have never seen that before
