Wow 17 years with a stoma - I can’t even begin to imagine how tough it has been through those years for you and all the long-term ostomates. I am guessing there was little information and even ...
Hi just breathe, love the name aswell. I am rosebud because this is the name i gave to my stoma all those years ago.
Dont get me wrong, even now i get so cheesed off with the whole thing, that did change my way of life, especially when it doesn't work properly, and that is due to the adhesions i have in the abdomen, which can twist with my small colon. Making me have a stoma that stops working.
So i drink like a fish.......water in the day 🙃, and exercising.
I agree, the amount of stuff us ostomates require, i mean if we go away for a couple nights, the 3rd person ( rosebud) 😂 requires more things than me.
Is there much help where you are? Sadly where i live we have 2 stoma nurses to cover 200 miles , its ridiculous. The guys who help if i am having issues is the company who sorts my monthly prescription out, they are worth there waiting gold.
Is your stoma a permanent fixture ? I hope you dont mind me asking.
Chat soon. 😊
