I thought I was doing everything ok, but I do strain and my surgeon says she sees things that are not good (pouch getting too large from not emptying enough and problems due to straining).  I was told to drink more water, but it wasn't until someone on here said drink, drink, drink...and it comes out like a fountain that I tried it out.  Since drinking water before, during and after eating I am doing much better.  I don't seem to go to the bathroom anymore than before (except maybe peeing more), but I am definitely able to empty my pouch easier than in the past.  I thought having a more firm stool was a good thing.  That's incorrect, right?  Yesterday we went to some bars to watch the games (a plus of still having the antibodies for Covid) and I drank probably 5 glasses of water.  I never can have spicy food...it gives me the worst butt burn and gas.  I had nachos and pizza with sausage and pepperoni.  I never had an issue.  No butt burn and everything came out just fine!  Anything else I'm doing wrong, lol?
