Stoma - output like thick stool?

I have just had surgery 2 weeks ago today and have a permanent ileostomy. I had one temporarily 16 years ago (I was 14 yo) and can remember parts of it but from memory the output quite often looked a bit like what had eaten. E.g. I remember eating a bag of chips and like thick potato like substance coming out.

Since I have had this stoma, every output has been light to dark brown, smells like stool and looks like thick or thin stool. Is that normal? Will this change with time?

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks - Luke

Noone? The output is sometimes greenish brown as well. Is that because there is a lot of bile in there?

It could be. You might want to check with your doctor.
