Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Do you notice any increased or decreased out through ileostomy?
Food blockage or dehydration can cause pain and pressure. Consuming more fluids like water, and Pedialyte may help with dehydration related symptoms. To prevent food blockage related symptoms chew your food well and eat in small amounts. Insoluble fibers like coconut, olive, mushroom, stringy vegetables are more problematic.
