Ileostomy - how long from eating until the digested product comes out thru the stoma
i have a new ileostomy.  i am trying to figure out what foods cause what "product" -- watery stool, gas, etc.  However, I am not sure WHICH food(s) are causing WHICH bowel movement, i.e., approximately how long after ingesting does the food come out through the stoma?

I had a stoma 6 years ago.  I diffinately avoided brussel sprouts, spinich and brocolli as they would stain the bag.  Along with those items I avoided any gas producing foods like beans...it's realy embarassing to pass gas at an inapproporiate time.  Generally speaking...a normal transit time for food is 1.5 to 2 hours.  If you arent' planning on going out or being around people then eating beans and ruffage would be fine.  Can I ask what caused you to get a stoma?  I had 12 incehes of my Sigmoid Colon removed because two diverticulum ruptured.

i posted this to celiac in error. firstly, thank you for your response!!  secondly, i was ill for a long time with Ulcerative Colitis which ruined my entire colon (large intestine).  the surgeons removed my entire colon in June, hence the ileostomy.  i'm doing very well now.  donna c.
