I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer last year in July. I had to have colon Ostomy surgery 2 surgery's first one I had a blockage never in my life have I ever been so sick. I thought I was going to die 2nd surgery turned good, but I can't get a reversal now. I am still very uncomfortable with having a Ostomy. My stoma is not lined up right it's crooked and I have a hard time with my bags. The way my stoma is it gets under my wafer on my skin and starts pushing up my wafer. I have googled over and over and can't find anything to help me. I feel uncomfortable and I am having a hard time being around other people or going any where with my husband. I feel I am neglecting my husband because I have become a home body. I am needing advise about what to do and how to work with a crooked stoma. Thanks for your time and help. Look forward to hearing from anyone that can help me.
