i dont think actually having an ileo woudl cause it. Some of of the diseases that lead up to needign an ileo, UC and crohns for example can cause it.
Also there are lots of meds that cause symptoms like that.
I dont knwo your age but of course it does start to come as you get older too, esp if you have been in poor health for a long time.
UC for 8 years, before finally kicking its butt and having a permanent ileostomy April 17 2007!
