Hi folks, I have a temp ileostomy, had it 9 weeks or so ....still have trouble with it thickening up so still lose a lot of fluid .... I eat all the correct foods and follow the BRAT diet ..... for the last week I've been suffering with short breath and nausea .... got my blood taken on Wed and the electrolytes were normal, had chest xray and presume it was normal too as I never heard back..... I went back to work on Thurs & Fri....managed but was very tired .... I drink at least 80oz of fluids a day ...I match output to input .... I take electrolyte pills, liquid Vitamins and Iron ..... but still wonder if I'm dehydrated .... though I don't have any of the other symptoms ....I have to sit down and rest even after making a cup of tea ....so short breathed ....doc wondered about
gall bladder, but would that cause the fatigue and breathlessness??? or is it simply Dehydration? .... and if so can I get back on top of it or should I go and get IV? I'm kinda worried.....don't want to take anymore time off my work .... as only just back!
