First dump after appliance change

Posted by britathrt60, on Sun Feb 09, 2020 10:20 pm

 

Hi Ostofriends 

This may sound really gross but im just going to throw it out here

The first time i empty after full appliance change always smells like cat pee ...no idea why and only like I say after first dump. Has anyone experienced this with ileostomy?  Not sure if it's the glue on flange or coloplast paste thar causes it....jump in with any ideas please and thanks..  I know Bob will have some great ideas  LOL.😀 

Cheers 

Ange

Hello Ange. Thanks for the brain-teaser but I feel we need a little bit more information to be able to guess at what might be causing this. I sometimes get a peculiar smell (a bit like you describe) when changing a plug. There is no output on it , so this is not an issue. I believe the smell could be caused by 'normal' body odour, which has been trapped under the plastic for a long time. However, it doesn't always happen, so my guess would be that it is aggravated or motivated by what I have eaten. I just ignore it, change the appliance and get on with life!

Best wishes

Hi Ange,

  OK.......I've regained my composure now, so let's see what we can do. If in fact your first output smells like cat urine........what makes cat urine stink is the high amount of ammonia it contains. And the way to neutralize ammonia is with vinegar. Sooooooo.......you need to drink some vinegar before you go to bed.  Now normally vinegar is a bit tough to swallow, so here's what you need to do......get your favorite apple cider vinegar, add some honey to it and a little bit of water to dilute. Try a tablespoon or two before bed and see how it goes. If it still stinks add another tablespoon until it solves the problem.

Hi Bill..the thing is before I change my flange and bag I have showered and cleaned stoma and area with rubbing alcohol .then I apply coloplast paste on outer edge of flange and attach my new appliances ...so it's not body odor ..it happens after the change and occurs during first emptying..I wonder if it's a chemical in the flange glue and paste that contradict each other cheers..Ange

As long as we're being uninhibited here; when I had my ileo, it smelled like cat pee, cow poop, dog shit, old farts, etc., all rolled into one! I couldn't stand myself! A few drops of eucalyptus oil into the bag  seemed to help.

Thanks Bob the ammonia makes sense ..it doesn't happen every day though ..it only happens first time I empty after cleaning area and applying new flange and bag....it's a mystery !
By the way. .check is on its way to the Bobs Cool Hat Fund..Lol.

Because piling on is fun....

I ate two things this weekend I haven't had since my ostomy.  A peppermint ( the old fashione red and white swirled disc) and a Steakum sub.  My output smelled like burnt rubber for two days. LOL

Ah...........my bad. So it sounds like it's more an "output to barrier/bag" type of reaction, not really about your first output being different from later output.  Interesting..................
