Hi, and thanks for having me here. I am one month post-op and having issues with pancaking. This didn't happen in the hospital. The stool would run to the bottom of the bag and I would empty as needed.
Since I am home and getting some help from home health care, they supplied me with Hollister vented bags that drain from the bottom. I tried the Adapt lubricant with no help.
I was just able to loosen some stool and get it out, but the bag, just put on yesterday, has stool all around the top where the vents are and all over the stoma.
Can I get some water in the bag and clean it out or just change it? Don't think I like these vented bags.
