I drink lots of liquids, especially the no cal with electrolytes.

Welcome Neugie. I see you and @kenc have connected. @liegeman @katydid77 @jfsbndr @msgtrebholtz may also have some tips about staying hydrated with an ileostomy.

I'd also like to bring @jandtrich13 into this discussion to see if she may have any experience to share regarding rectal pressure post ostomy surgery.

@neugie, we know that staying hydrated is critical following an ileostomy and are sorry you are having difficulties with that aspect of the journey. My husband has given up golf until cooler weather here in central Florida because it just is not possible to take in enough fluid in 90 degree weather. He has found that drinking Gatorade cut about 50% with ice or water works best for him. He keeps a glass sitting around all the time and sips on it all through the day. He was told he should consume 80 ounces of fluid each day. We are not familiar with the Banatrol product you mentioned but will look into it. Best of luck and keep us up to date with what works for you. We’re all in this together.
