Just kidding about my marriage, but my husband and I have a continual debate about my ileostomy drainage. He says that everything I drink, all liquids, go directly to my kidneys/bladder. I say that much of my liquid intake goes out my ostomy pouch. You would think we understand our basic anatomy, but we don't. If I go all day without eating, I still have to empty pouch several times. Has anybody had this explained to them? Btw, he is even a nurse who works in intensive care, but doesn't see many ostomies on his unit. I just want to understand. Thank you.
