Vomiting due to what ?

 
This is the best website for people with an Ostomy. So much understanding.

I’ve had my ileostomy for 4 years now. Last night I all of a sudden begin vomiting a lot and several times. My ileostomy only let out clear liquid and had to empty it every hour all night long…vomiting 3 times. 
Anyone have this happen and why ? Now,I’m afraid to eat..sipping slowly.

Might just be a bug.

Oh gosh Ritz I have no idea. I know every now and then I will get stomach ache at night but so far no vomiting. Good luck.

 

Do you have any pain? My bag started filling up with liquid when I started having pain from gallstones. It still does that. I'm having my gallbladder out in two weeks so I'll see what happens after that......otherwise, it sounds like it could be a stomach bug, especially with the vomiting. Try hard to hydrate with the loss of all that liquid. Not easy to do when you're nauseous. I hope it passes quickly. 

 

Hello, this happened to me and continued for ages before my Doctor explained that I should take a drug called omeprazole because I had high Output and vomiting , here is some blurb about it

Gastric acid secretions often increase after small bowel resection because of interference with negative feedback mechanisms that control the process. This can lead to increased stoma output. Reducing gastric acid secretions can therefore decrease stoma output. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and somatostatin analogues are often used for this purpose.

PPIs block the production of gastric acid. Omeprazole is the most commonly used PPI in this setting and high doses of 40mg twice a day are often needed. Because omeprazole is absorbed in the upper sections of the small intestine, patients who have had extensive small bowel surgery may not respond fully to the drug.

 

Sounds more like you had a blockage or adhesions usually after being sick a few times you have loose output for a time afterwards, keep your fluid intake high unless any other health problems limit the amount you can drink and I would eat a light diet for a day or two  

 

Hopefully just a bug hun...please keep hydrated and if possible eat some toast or crackers etc ya got to have something in ya.. 

please feel better soon,

Hey Ritzer,

  It's always something........isn't it?  An ostomate's life might not be fun..........but it sure ain't boring!!  There's a lot of things that can cause what you describe.....one key that eliminates about half of them is whether you had a fever or not when this happened.  Any chance you checked?  The other thing I'd want to know is was your clear output normal in volume, more or less than normal?  And are we talking perfectly clear?  If so, when was the last time you ate something?  Any other symptoms.....like abdominal cramping, you being pregnant.....or something else of note?

  We'll figure it out........but if not, the normal good advice would be if it hasn't cleared up in a day or three.........you know to go see someone about it, right? Yeah, I know you do. 

;O)

Bob… after vomiting the output was pale yellow,like pee…. And way too much emptying every hour during my sleep time. No fever,no pain. Yesterday I began with nibbles of saltines and grape juice and hot tea. My output all of a sudden expelled a hard long substance…I think it was a piece of a chicken bone . I did have chicken the afternoon I vomited. I’m ok now, but will never eat a drumstick again . 
And no, I’m not pregnant ! I am getting married in a few months…but no babies in my future !! 

 

You’re not supposed to eat the chicken bones. 😁

 

Hi Ritzer..........well good, sounds like you found the problem.  As Alex mentioned.....you're not supposed to "eat" the whole drumstick.....normal humans just pick the meat off the bone and just eat that.  You folks from Arizona are weird......first you live in a really hot place that has no water.........and now you're eating whole chickens, bones and all. I hope you at least take the feathers off first!

Next you'll be telling us you want to take up salt water fishing!  

;O)

bob

PS..........Congrats on your engagement!!! 

 

Hi Ritz,

You really must’ve been hungry eating bones and all lol!!!! It sounds like you found out the cause of all that vomiting etc… Next time you’re starving try icecream or something without bones hahaha 😝 

Glad you’re feeling better and sending happy vibes your way on your engagement!

😇

 

Congrats on your engagement! 🥂💕

 

Does your fiancé know about the engagement? 😁 wish you the best.
