First of all I want to thank everyone who has ever posted on here, you are awesome! ;I got my ileostomy September 2001 so you would think I have nothing to learn but you all have helped me more than you will ever know! ;Also I would never had thought having an Ostomy could be funny but I have laughed quite often after reading some posts and I thank you for that too.
Ok, so here's my problem.. I started a diet that requires me to have 6oz of grain for every meal and 12oz of vegetables for lunch and dinner (amongst protein, fruit and oils). The oatmeal at breakfast doesn't bother me but the quinoa, brown rice or sweet potato I have for the other two meals is causing leaks (I wear the 2 piece system). Every morning I wake up to a broken seal and a leak. I have tried adding extenders but they don't hold up either.
I really don't want to change this diet because I am losing weight but I'm also losing my mind. I have to change the bag once a day, sometimes twice.
If anyone has any suggestions (other than eliminating the grains) I'd love to hear them.
Thank you everyone...have a great day
