Brief Answer:
Please give additional information

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Noted the history and understood your concerns.
Please give additional information for me to assist you better:
Is ileostomy closed? Meaning you are passing stool through anus?
Anything new in foods or beverages tried a few days back?
Stool: Color, consistency, smell? Any mucus and/or blood?
Any constitutional symptoms like fever, malaise, body ache, chills?
Abdomen: Bloating, nausea, vomiting, pain?

Awaiting for your feedback.
Till then please yourself well hydrated by taking plenty of oral fluids, use boiled for 20 minutes and cooled water.
Take banana, yogurt/curds, activated charcoal tablets.
