I had an ileostomy 5 months ago. I named my stoma Bertie. I have not settled into a routine yet. My biggest problem is I can’t stop leakage. I’ve tried changing my diet. We have tried multiple barrier systems. I’ve used a few drops of oil in the pouch but it still sticks to my stoma, causing pancaking. I’m getting discouraged. Any help would be appreciated.
