New here and new to having an ileostomy. I have to drink pedilyte (or gatoraid/power aid) and I started drinking cherry punch pediyte with ice this evening and had a banana for a snack. My output looks red. Could it be blood? Or is it probably just from the drink? I have a ton of cherry popsciles I'd like to eat as well and they are super red, so I want to know whether to expect this or be conserned. Thanks so much.
**Thank you all so much for the info. I had a rough day. 2nd day home, alone, and my bag leaked. Rough go at changing my bag for the first time alone. Made for a super hard day all around. I am just menatlly wiped right now. I'll thank you all individually tomorrow.
