I have had my ileostomy for 1.5 years now. I alter between a very liquid and massive output even without eating and a very thick ouput (I don't eat much fiber at all). This irregular output is due to my intestinal dysmotility. If I have SIBO which results in osmotic diarrhoea my tranist time (=before I can the "results" for the first time, NOT the time the stuff takes time to pass completely the small bowel) naturally speeds up and can be only 3 hours for solids.
If I have my normal thicker ouptut (although I don't eat normal amounts and have to drink pretty much) my transit time for solids is about
6hours. If I have recurrent episode with super thick output which is even difficult to get out of the bag and resembles real "formed" stool it takes 8,9h+ to see the "results" in the bag, sometimes I don't notice them even after 24h.
