When I had the ostomy, that started happening at the end. It would be a few times a day, but I found out I had pouchitis then, too. At the very end, the last few days before takedown, I had HUGE leaks at night.

I do have stuff coming out, but it is not a lot. I don't have gas, but I was assured that this was all normal. do you feel pain when going? How often is often for you? I Think the most I had to evacuate was like twice for the day. I do have a temp ileo. Most of it is still mucus, no blood.

I've had my temp ileo for three years. I go about once every three weeks. Sometimes more. It depends on the time of the month. I notice it more around my period. Weird!

Hi there,
 
When I had my temp ileostomy I passed nothing for about six months after surgery, before starting to experience the urge to "go." Thereafter, I would pass mucous at least once a week, and sometimes every day. The rate of discharge seemed to bear no relationship to the output from the stoma, i.e. at times I was passing a lot of mucous, I would have solid output. Often I would pass mucous after drinking a cup of coffee, etc. Occasionally I would pass a little blood with the mucous. It didn't have any effect on the surgeon's decision to perform a reversal, as I feared it might.
