Hi Jan, I have been wondering about
you, I hope your stoma revision has been beneficial for you. I don't know if you remember me, but we posted here about
octreotide injections to try to help the (too fast) motility problem associated w/ileostomy. I gave myself the octreotide injections for 10 weeks and ended up in hospital due to dehydration. The injections left me feeling so full I was not able to drink enough Gatorade to stay hydrated. Needless to say, I'm no longer taking the octreotide injections. I'm back to drinking large quantities of Gatorade and water and am "just" able to maintain hydration. While I don't regret the elective surgery I had (proctocolectomy w/ileostomy), it has definitely
opened up another can of worms, lol. I think we have similar problems and I really hope you are doing well!!!
