I have had my ileostomy for 10 months now and was getting better by the month and then I think I have come to a stand still. Like a flare of days gone by. Pain, tired, stomach ach. But yeah I have a pouch so no accidents!! Just wondering how to tell if one has diarrhea?

I have GI appointment next week but don't know what he can do. Not fond of the more meds idea.
Those things we keep trying to do get easier not because the feat gets easier but our ability to "do" gets better.

Your output INCREASES:( You might find yourself emptying a couple times an hour...so you'd also dehydrate:( which could be the tired.

If it's a bug it will only last a little while...but if you find yourself dehydrating more, get to the hospital for fluids. You'll feel much better after them:)

Sorry you're not feeling well...(((HUGS)))
