My stoma output has always been pretty high and I had 2 consecutive hospital visits weeks after my surgery as a result of this and dehydration etc. I have been managing it ok since but since last week my output has been reaching 1.5litres + , is usually very liquidy and often contains a lot of undigested food. I'm a bit worried about the effects of this. I was taking a high dose of Loperamide but have been decreasing it since being in hospital, and have been down to a stable lower dose for a few weeks now, but all of a sudden my output is very high. I am eating well and having a lot of 'stodgy' food like I've been told. Any ideas or suggestions?!
