A little back story.... My mom just got her colostomy after she went septic and had emergency surgery. I've had 23 days to come to terms with it but she's been so out of it she just realized yesterday what exactly was coming out of her stomach.
We got home from the hospital Saturday and I was warned that the smell might be potent once opened but the smell is strong all the time. Is that normal? Or am I applying the bag wrong? I changed it while we were in the hospital. She wasn't eating a lot but she had started eating normal hospital food the last week or so and the smell wasn't bad. We got a lot of different kinds of bags at the hospital
And I just figured it was the "filtered" bags. But I put a regular bag on her and it's just as bad. Can anyone help??? She's very upset about it.
