Hi, all! I had my j-pouch created (and a loop ileostomy) on 9/8/20, and I'll have my takedown in late December. I want to try thickening up my stool. First, what are some effective stool binding supplements? And second, I've heard that output consistency can change a lot from before takedown to after. If this is the case, does it even make sense to experiment with thickening before my takedown? Would I be better off experimenting after takedown?
Thanks in advance, everyone! I'm really happy to be here!
