Last December my large intestine puncture after 12 years of CD, I spent 9 months with an ileostomy and last October I had reconnective surgery.
I still go to the bathroom some 8 times a day, and I'm using Desitin and Baby wipes every time I'm home. From October to today, there has been a slow but progressive "embetterment" of the situation".
My dietist reccomended soluble fiber found in rice, and rice water, also I'm taking an Acidophilus supplement and Metamucil 3 times a day.
The consistency also dependes on what I've been eating for the day, my dietist have told me that chocolate and home-fried foods help slow the digestion. High-sugar eats and sodas are a no-no.
There're also some medication available, I'm not taking any of them but you may ask a doctor for them.
here are some links, IMHO ostomy diets are applicable to reconnections, since you still have and internal pouch until you body starts to collect water from the pouch.
hope it helps, always get a doctor's advice before trying anything.
