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.
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.
