Please give additional information

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

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?

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

Hope I have answered your query.
