Thank you for your question.

I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

At night you have to push fleet enema through the ileostomy opening.

After a few minutes to hour bowel movements would start to clear the bowel.

In the morning you do not take anything by mouth.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
