I was discharged from hospital with my new temporary loop ileostomy this morning. They only let me go because my stoma output was just about
ok (less than 1 litre) whereas the previous days it had been way over. However they said if it was to go over 1 litre whilst at home then I would need to go back in. I've been keeping an eye and measuring as much as is possible and this afternoon alone I have emptied over 0.5 litre, am needing to empty every 2 hours or so. I have just got my appetite back properly after the surgery which was 2 weeks ago and the stoma output seemed to be beginning to thicken yesterday but despite trying to eat decent food today including things to 'bulk' up, it is still so liquidy.
I have already been discharged and re-admitted once since the surgery I desperately don't want this to be the case again. But what can I do to try to sort this out?!
