I am sorry. Yes, since you're just disconnected, not closed up, the stuff down on the bottom end keeps functioning. It shouldn't be a ton to let out, but it can be daily for some people. Since you have a loop, some output can pass through the pouching system. The loop ileo technically has an
opening that comes from up and one that goes down. If you really inspect it, you would likely notice that it's a bit of a dome. I used to go push out whatever was there in the AM and that was it for me. My surgeon said some people do an enema to eliminate the waste, and then you don't need to do it for a while. I never wanted to worry about
an enema again so I couldn't be bothered.
This is kind of gross and kind of interesting/images.discovertherapies.com/article_images/images/000/000/045/max/loop.jpg?1493684511
You would be like the jpouch person waiting to reconnect, but you have your natural rectum and colon down there, which is great, so you can reconnect and get back to normal.
You definitely need to be careful about
blocks with the loop. I had one with mine. Crampy and nauseous - passed on it's own luckily. I hope you never deal with it again. Chew really well, and definitely avoid mushrooms and corn. Mushrooms don't break down at all. There are a bunch of items, I am sure they gave you a list
