I have Crohns Disease and I have had a ileostomy for 3 years come 10/14. It hangs approximately 4 inch down inside a bag. They will not reverse for me they said I would never make it off the table. Everything I eat and drink goes directly into my bag. I have always been heavy but lost 150 pounds while in the hospital (8 months) and know am gaining weight back. My doctor said he doesn't understand how I can be gaining when everything comes out. I'm wanting to know if anybody is or has the same thing I have and experienced or experiencing weight gain and how do I STOP gaining weight?????
