I was diagnosed with rectal cancer ten years ago and ended up with a permanent colostomy. I had no problems until I developed a hernia. I had a hernia repair and a stoma revision done about a month ago. I went from a nice little stoma that was very easy to pouch to a convex stoma. I am having so much trouble trying to work with this new stoma. It leaks all the time. I have never been so depressed. I have to go back to work in a few weeks and I am terrified. I have been working with the stoma nurse in my surgeon's office. She pulls out her McGuyver bag and whatever she puts on me ends up leaking. Her response when I call her is to come back in and she will "figure something out". I don't know what to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
