Ileostomy since 1995, rectum not in use since then. I have also been on 15!g of Oxycodone 4X daily for approx. the same time which slows my system down. I do drink 2ltrs. of water & soda a day. For about 10 yrs. now I pass with great difficulty waste, gray in color I believe is dead bacteria, not normal waste from food.About 5 yrs. ago I found my rectum is too small to pass what's in there and it is very dry. Enema's don't seem to help at all.I am literally afraid of going back to see ANY doctors again!
