Hi, i’ve Had my stoma for three months now. All was going well, until 4 days ago. I ate some Oreo Cookies, right after the gas pains and diarrhea began. This is the 4th day. Everything that I eat goes straight through and the color is black to a deep green. I’m not in any pain now because the gas has subsided but the diarrhea is still happening. I’ve taken Mylanta and Kaopectate for gas and diarrhea, it took care of the gas but not the diarrhea. I’m not in pain but the discoloration and diarrhea does not make me feel comfortable. My next appointment is in March to see the surgeon to begin plans for my reversal. I don’t want anything to go wrong before that time. Mostly I want to stay healthy. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Should I contact my doctor? Please help me understand.
Hi Clara, the first time ate Oreo's the same thing happened to me with the coloring it was black and it scared me as well, with watery output (diarrhea) i was told to have marshmallows as it helps slow it and then thickens it.. hope that helps :)
