Ileostomy surgery

An ileostomy is a stoma in the ileum (small intestine).1

Ileostomy surgery

The ileum contains digestive enzymes and acids that may cause skin irritation. Extra care is needed with an ileostomy to keep waste materials from coming into contact with the skin on your abdomen.2

Having an ileostomy may make some people more prone to dehydration, which could lead to the loss of important minerals your body needs.3
