A man had posted on this site that after his ostomy surgery, his urine output had decreased, and he wanted to know if that happened to everyone.. Any person who has an ileostomy should be seeing a KIDNEY SPECIALIST. My surgeon sent me to a kidney specialist when I left the hospital because if tons of the liquid you drink is going out in your ostomy bag, you are NOT GETTING ENOUGH LIQUID GOING THROUGH YOUR KIDNEYS, and your kidneys will fail, and you will end up on dialysis. M kidney specialist has me drinking 60 ounces of water per day. I am an older female who weighs 98 pounds. The amount you need would vary according to your body size and weight, I am sure. I did not know how to get back to answer directly to the man who was asking about liquid intake.
