Feeling Ostomistic
Monday, May 27 2013

Had a really massive day yesterday and so much good news came out of it!

I had another issue through the night with my bags and wafers they just weren't sticking! I arranged with the stoma nurse at the base hospital (who is lovely) to have a look and work out a sticking solution.

I found out why my bags weren't sticking!

Turns out I had lost a bunch of weight since the surgery so when my stoma was sighted (drew big dot on my tummy where the stoma was to go) I had at the time one big belly with a shelf like roll so it all sat nicely. Now I have two smaller rolls with a crease through the middle. So the bags weren't sticking to the crease!


We tried a new bag and wafer one they use for hernia's and uneven skin and voulah! It sticks!

We were able to mould this particular wafer to suit my uneven skin and moulded the wafer into the crease and reinforced with banana wafers.

So far so good!

I am feeling much more confident and ready to go home!

On other news was told my endometriosis so far has completely cleared away after the past 6 months of zolodex injections!

So I am in a good place today and ready to go home! So fingers crossed! x
