My jpouch is being removed this week for an ileostomy. I have used citrucel for years to get formed stool in the pouch. Should this still be effective as a thickener with the stoma. Does anyone use this or metamucil or similar products?
Hi, I don't use any of those types of products, as my output is fairly thick, depending on what I eat. I do take imodium twice a day (before breakfast and before bedtime),
I think it will work but the quantity might change. You'll learn how to determine the amount you take by what you are eating. I use 6 Imodium and 1 metamucil serving daily.
