I'm a relatively new Ostomate... Colostomy Sept 2019 changed to an Ileostomy Jan 14 2020.
For 2 months with my new ileostomy I was doing ok, trying different procucts to meet the need of a highly liquid & at time high volume output.
About a month ago after regaining about 5 pounds quickly I started having leaks... Before when I had a Colostomy with a thick output I rarely had leaks... a few but nothing I couldn't handle
until the weight gain (I was using a flange I really liked with a collar to fit aroung my oval stoma) now I had daily leakage & 1 day 4-5 leaks
