I reading another post earlier today and something in there caught my eye and got me thinking! I was wondering how people's ileostomies function when they wake up in the mornings. Ever since I had my surgery I wake up in the morning and as soon as I get moving my bag will fill up two or three times with just straight liquid. I always thought this was weird since mornings are supposed to be the quietest times for ostomies. And once this happens mine usually is until I eat breakfast. I am wondering if this is a normal occurance or whether I might have some kind of excess stomach acid that I could get under control through medication. It sure can be annoying since it happens every morning and I am concerned about going back to teaching and having to deal with a full bag every morning unless I get up super early to try and get it under control before I leave my house. And who would I ask about this...could i ask my surgeon who I am seeing on thursday for a follow-up or should I ask my family doctor? Any thoughts??
