I have a little upset stomach tonight. All I ate was cereal for supper . The stuff in my bag is green too....but I did have green beans for dinner last night and it could be that. Is it ok to take pepto bismal?

I am pretty sure we can take pepto bismol. Have you tried walking around? I have found that sometimes when my stomach feels uncomfortable, that walking around helps and I assumed it was gas pains. Hope you feel better, Tracy

I didn't try walking around...but am I ever so glad I didn't eat the spaghetti and meatballs in my homemade sauce that I made for my husband tonight..whewie!
It isn't gas pains, the discomfort is in the upper part of my stomach...more like indigestion type of nausea. I did take a tablespoon of Pepto....I also poured myself a big glass of 7up...I cannot drink water on top of Pepto..ugh. I will wait half an hour or so...hope I don't vomit .

oh thats happening to me right now! cause i ate too much though, lol. the only thing i have found when that happens is to just wait it out.
That also happens sometimes when i have gas that gets stuck up to high, and i only know that its gas because if i lay on my left side for a while, i have gas like crazy, then i feel better!

It's been 45 minutes and my stomach is starting to feel a bit better. I also have a headache and know it is something on my stomach...took a Tylenol PM just now. Wonder if it was the 1/2 grilled cheese I had for lunch....never bothered me before though. Oh well...as long as I can keep from vomiting. Maybe I will have some plain saltines.

oh after i read that you havent had much to eat today right? if thats true, the green stuff may be bile, and the milk may have been a little hard on your stomach from it being empty

OOOOH...that makes sense summerstorm. I thought it might be bile but was hoping it wasn't. This morning my stomach still feels a bit out of sorts but I ate a scrambled egg and English muffin. The stuff coming out is no longer green. Does bile come out a lot with ileos? Are you still having a problem?
I forgot to mention that my grilled cheese consisted of regular square cheese and one slice of Mozzarella. Maybe the Mozzarella was too much? I've had it before and it didn't bother me but guess there is always a first time. I don't use regular milk, I drink Lactaid still.

Seeing bile is normal and it shouldn't cause you fear. Taking PB is okay too.

Thank you! I feel much better now. I went to church for the first time since my operation....felt wonderful to go there...have a lot to be thankful for. We are heading for the shore in a few hours and staying till Tuesday in our travel trailer...wooo hooo!!! Don't know about the rest of the country but it is sooo stinkin HOT here in south Jersey. In all my 63 yrs, I NEVER remember a summer with this many consecutive HOT days.

Glad you are feeling better. Me and my husband changed my bag, AGAIN, as the one last night just itched and itched. My skin under my stoma is also a mess. YIKES I put a piece of an eaken seal right under my wafer, I rolled it real skinny. We then put some of the paste around the opening of the wafer. We put the paste real thick and my husband is worried it may block the stoma hole, but so far, so good. The poop is still coming out into the bag. I hope this keeps the skin protected.

I have 2 holes in my stoma, one is for poop and one is for mucous, and they are both at the very bottom of my stoma, pointing down Is yours like this? My stoma also sticks out like 1/2 of an inch. How far is yours sticking out? The stoma is still a little more than 7/8 inch. I will be glad when it settles down and I can order pre-cut wafers. It still takes us 30 minutes to change the bag....UGH I was wondering if I may need a convex wafer? I am going to call and see if the stoma nurse can see me sometime next week so I can get some advice.

It is so hot here, we are under a heat advisory and they are recommending we do not go outside unless absolutely necessary. That is very scary, especially when my doctor wants me to go back to work August 2nd. I am also shocked at the consecutive hot days. We aren't getting very much rain either and everything looks scorched. SCARY Praying for a break in this weather and for LOTS of rain.

I am still having TONS of watery, green output....but yesterday, I ate a rice krispie treat...I still had more than normal output, but it thickened it up some. It worked so well, I only had to get up once to empty my bag, and it was thicker, not pure green water. I think that was a tip from Summerstorm. Thanks Summer. I will try it again today just to be sure that it was the rice krispie treat that thickened it up, and if so, looks like I may have to add a rice krispie treat to my calorie intake and take something else away. LOL I am going to have to be careful with my food intake because I can eat ALOT of food. Before surgery, I could not eat more than a small child, now I can eat like a PIG. Oink Oink

Have a great time on your trip. You deserve it. Tracy
