Just another diet question for ileostomates. So, chocolate and sugary stuff gives me LOTS of watery output.

Does anyone else experience this from chicken soup? Is it the salt in the soup that is just too much or is it the fat?

still working on diet. A work in progress. Rosemary

Any soup gives me watery output. I find it hilarious! It shoots out my stoma against the bag like a power washer! hehe I find joy wherever I can :)

Its not the salt. Its probably just cause its liquid going in, its gonna be liquid coming out!

Love your response Trying! Find fun however we can get it. Yep, sort of like my chocolate fountain the other night.

Thanks summer also. Plus this soup was really greasy. Gross!

Have you thought of thicker soups you make to work for your body? I make my own Butternut Squash. I just roast the squash with onions (and a little olive oil) in the oven and puree it with a little chicken stock.

I agree with summerstorm any liquid going in comes out as liquid. It does for me as well. I prefer a liquidy output as its easier to empty and doesn't seem to leave the pouch as yucky looking lol.

I have a jpouch and any soup gives me watery output so I choose not to eat it. This is normal for us.

Thanks for all your responses. This was totally weird. The chicken soup due to all the fat, MSG (never a good thing), and all the salt had me up all night long. I tend toward diarrhea on the easy side. So this morning things had eased up. When I ate breakfast this huge output of fatty stuff came out. It was REALLY TRULY GROSS.

So I drank some grape juice to see if there was more and there was not. Being "empty" the grape juice gave me more diarrhea. I finally surrendered and took two immodium and went back to bed.

This chicken soup was in a health food store mind you. Well my saying is as long as things are passing, then everything else can be dealt with. Thus another food experiment.

I really think my limits are scrambled eggs, white flour things to a limit, yogurt, some purred fruit and veggies, very tender meat and that's about it. Weight gain has not been a problem as ice cream really packs it on. I HAVE to drop some lbs. Just hard doing it when you can't chomp into salads etc anymore (i have an ileo stoma, very small, need to be sure not to get a blockage, hence no raw stuff.)

Hi Rosemary,
Since having my ileostomy I eat anything even raw stuff like salads, I just make sure I chew it quite a bit and so far I've not had any blockage problems. I really don't think you need to limit your foods, we all had this surgery so we could eat anything again and I love it. Yes there are some foods that will give you a watery output but if that bothers you just take imodium to thicken it up again. Personally I prefer watery output as its easier to empty. I do have adhesions and know I need to be a little more careful and do need surgery again but when I'm ready, I just can't face more surgery just yet. Take care
