Not everyone finds it easy adjusting to having a stoma whether it was an emergency or planned. But I asked varying ostomates around the world that are in the “Making Ostomies Cool” group how they got their stoma and if they adjusted and how.
This week on The IBD and Ostomy Support Show we have been talking about whether people find sleeping with an ostomy difficult or not.
In this latest edition of Let’s Be OstoMATES we have Sue who talks to us candidly about her experiences on the way to having her permanent ileostomy.
Leaks are definitely not a pleasant experience for anyone that has had one, it is the other end of the spectrum to blockages but after having both I don’t have one I prefer that’s for sure!
Have you suffered a blockage yet? I hope not because they are pretty darn painful even the partial ones. I asked in Making Ostomies Cool a Facebook group that I help to admin; what they have found to help relieve blockages and some of the solutions were quite varied.
