Constant leakage

I’m 3 weeks post-op from my takedown surgery. I had the 3 step surgery, and after my second surgery (jpouch creation and loop ileostomy), I had constant liquid leakage from by bottom all the way until takedown. I wore a pad day and night. I’m continuing to have this liquid leakage (now more stool colored than clear, but same consistency) even when my stool is quite formed. I’m taking Benefiber powder and Cholestyramine (thought it would help absorb bile). Has anyone experienced this? What was the solution? I’ve been treated for some slight suspected pouch inflammation, but that didn’t affect the leakage issue. I see my surgeon next week, I just can’t stop worrying. The leakage is causing severe skin irritation and I can’t sleep without an adult diaper or leave the house without a large pad. Thanks in advance for any advise.
