Re: why would feces come out rectum if I have an ileostomy
is it actually feces or mucous? I had a colostomy and it was a couple months later that I felt pressure and the urge to "go". I told myself thats silly, there's nothing there, but sat on the toilet and lo and behold, out came something. Its common to have the mucous lining kind of slough off and pass. Some will irrigate to clean out the rectum, but it didn't bother me so much.
