I'm assuming you have a loop ileostomy? If so, yes this is completely normal. Picture you intestine as a garden hose. To create a loop the surgeon cuts the intestine halfway through. One half exits as the ostomy, the other half continues down the old route. So it's easy for food to bypass the ostomy and continue down through the normal exit. Don't be surprised if you see ocassional blood either, it's just a sign of healthy tissue.
