I am an ileostomate who gets pancaking around the stoma from eating bread or starchy foods. So today I thought I would make myself a treat. hahahaha!

Made a recipe for chocolate frosting: 6 tblsp butter, 2.75 cups of confectioners sugar, tsp of vanilla, 1/3 cup of milk, 1/2 cup cocoa then mix

I only had about 2 tablespoons of the stuff. Not only did it empty me of EVERYTHING I had eaten but then it reached into the future and emptied me of food I had not yet eaten.

SO THEN I had to eat baby food bananas, dry toast, and applesauce and pasta to slow the flow and it did but with pancaking.

SO then I thought, well, just a tiny bit of that frosting will loosen me just enough to get all that thickening food to move out. So I had a 1/2 tsp of the "magic frosting" Oh, lord, it must be the fat content or the intense sugar, but off I went into ileostomy diarrhea land again from so little of the stuff. My transit is not slow to begin with but certain foods still thicken and pancake.

BUT I was thinking if anyone has slow transit even if they have an ileostomy and there are a few on this board who do, then try the above recipe and let me know if it helps. I am now thinking about taking an immodium as I have to get to bed. Bad day with discovery of what for me is on a do not eat list.

It should have been obvious to me but wasn't, when I pancake, I just let some air into the pouch and it slides right down.

esoR, i just love the idea that your recipe can time travel into the future & empty food not yet eaten - used properly a person could get all the emptying for the day done before leaving the house in the morning - get it patented quick - youre gonna be a millionaire !!!!

Hodaya - YES!!!!!!! Though not needed for myself, obviously, I have found a cure for those with slow transit such as yourself. PUT that prune juice aside, make my recipe and report back to me.

villager, Yes, I am trying out my recipe on Hodaya and if she gets results I will go for the patent:-) :-) :-)

trying, I have not tried letting air into the bag, I can't wrap my head around unhitching the bag from the face plate as mine is on with a mighty tupper ware click that I may not be able to get clicked on again in time. But those who do have great success such as yourself. This is a whatever works type of thing isn't it?

Hodaya, try this, this may be the end of slow guts for anyone on here with slow guts, try and report back, I feel a patent coming on! $$$$$$ Rosemary

LOL you guys crack me up tongue  
 
also, Rosemary, as villager said, ppl with fast transit can be done with emptying before leaving the house, as everything including what they havn't eaten yet tongue will be out, so during the day they will be free of emptying (cuz whatever they eat after leaving the house has already gone out, right?) lol............

I love that theory Hodaya. I just passed a tuna sandwich in one and a half hours in the company of a low calorie coke and two spoons of the chocolate "Elixer."

I have a real itch under my wafer. I sure hope I don't have a yeast issue or a burn. I really gotta cool on all this sugar. Rosemary

Kyle, give it a shot. As Hodaya said it cannot hurt and it really tastes GOOOOOD!

ALSO have you tried high doses of Sorbitol fake sweetner. That is a GO food with a colon or not. IF any doc had told me about that even in my original state with a prolpased small bowel that was squeezing my rectum, I could have just lived on Sorbitol and never have gone down the road I did. Did any doc mention this? Noooooooo, of course not. Give the sorbitol AND my recipe a try and you may just do fine. Rosemary
