Hello out there. So, I just had another ileostomy revision about a month ago. It seems that my body keeps trying to close the hole in my abdomen. Yikes! This time, it isn't healing as well and the skin is separating from the stoma. As the stomal swelling goes down, the separation gets bigger. I am told it will heal, and I am just trying to keep it from getting infected at this point. I am going to try infrared light, and I am taking extra collagen, C, and flavonoids, as well as upping my protein intake. I use a silver gel on the wound after thoroughly cleaning it, and I am "crusting" powder and barrier as well as using paste. I am changing my appliance every 1-2 days. So far, so good, but it is slow going. Has anyone had experience with this, and what did you do?
