Hey Tracy, I'm kinda new to this too. I have been eating more since I got the surgery, but it seems like i ALWAYS have output. I'm a week out of surgery and hoping it slows down a little bit. A couple times when I changed it, stuff was coming out everywhere. It's very frustrating because I am not used to wiping the stoma and cleaning it up. As soon as I get out of bed more comes out.
Another thing that I do is keep a cup by the bathroom sink and when I empty it I rinse the bag out to keep it clean.
