ileal conduit and fecal incontinence
Is it possible to develop fecal incontinence (loose stool) after having a cystoprotatectomy with creation of an ileal conduit? If so what could be done to relieve this condition?

Yes, this can happen based on how much intestine was removed and what previous intestinal surgery and problems you have had. Also, if you received any radiation treatments these could be part of the problem. There are medications that can slow down intestinal movement and thereby help to firm-up your stools (Immodium, Lomotil). You would do well to see a gastroenterologist (internal medicine physician who specializes in the medical management of intestinal problems) or a colorectal surgeon to sort out what is going on.
