Applesauce-like stools after ileostomy reversal

Post by readann »

My poop in the morning is applesauce consistency (last night's dinner), but the problem is, I pass it about 10 times over a few hours. This happens again later in the day after breakfast and lunch. I've been playing around with psyllium and cholestryamine but no dice, yet. Any advice on food options to help with this?

For context, I do not have a colon and have an ileorectal anastomosis, so my small intestine is hooked up to my rectum.

Please help me if you can. I am getting desperate as I can't even leave the house.
