OK, So I went to see my GI specialist today and he said my ileostomy is acting like a colostomy. By 5:30pm today, I had 2 ounces of output. He said that a normal person (which obveously I am NOT) with an ileostomy would DIE if they had this little amount of output. The "normal" person with an ileostomy should produce about
2 -2.5 quarts (approximately 30-40 oz)of fluid a day. And of course, then theres me...2 ounces. I have to do another Sitz marker test as soon as I can and make an appt at some motility clinic in SC to have a test done on my small intestines (seeing how I live in Fl, this is not going to be a fun trip). After that, we will have to wait and see what to do.
At least I have some good news....for one, my bag rarely needs to be emptied and two, I have almost made it 7 days with out changing my bag (Congratulations to myself).
Anyway, there's the update. Now I know, I'm not normal...go figure?
