Ileostomy Reversal

Hi everyone!   Just had my reversal 3 weeks ago.   I woke up with a huge hole in my belly but is healing up pretty good.  I guess its the new thing not to sew you up and let it heal from the inside out.   I have a hard time looking at it but my husbands takes the flashlight and likes to look into my belly.   YUK!   I am pooing 8-14 times a day and my butt hurts. My stools are small like finger size and smaller but shaped like a triangle.  Is this normal?.  Please tell me this gets better.  I am trying to eat normal food but things like green beans, strawberries, blueberries and whole grain breads are not working.   Trying rice, pasta, yogurt, bananas, and toast to try to slow things down. Any other suggestions?  

Grateful not to have the bag.

Yeah I was the same, The constant going to the loo will carry on for a long while depending on how much of your intestine is left. the Giant hole will heal from the inside out and will take some time.
Mine was was 3 and half cm deep and 6 cm across.
Maybe try some jelly sweets that helped me with the acidic poo helped add some texture to it. Sounds like your going the right way.
From my experience keep it up! Smile

Thanks for the reply.   Yes I guess mine was about the same size, but it was hard for me to look.  I am one of those that are faint at heart.  Thanks for the tip on the jelly beans,  I will try them.  

No more bag.
