My name is Maria,I live in Florida with my husbund,one of our son and his family live close by. I am a quadriplegic incomplite I have lot of my arms and hands use.This happened in 1984 do to a car accident and had spinal injury and I have been paralyzed , and unable to control bowl and bladder, I had a pouch for bladder and maneged the bowl but trugh the years it got very difficult to do ,so that is why I got an ostomy so it has been two weeks but I have trouble keeping from leaking. if there is someone that had the same problem could you please share your solution.
Thank you , Maria
