I'm sure this is NOT the answer you are looking for but.....I haven't slept in a bed in FIVE years. I have an ileostomy on the right side above the waist line. Two hernias create their own issues for adherence and mobility and I have found it is just not worth the effort to lie down. Every time I lie down, whether flat on my back or on either side, I end up covered in $#!!, so I gave up destroying matresses and washing protectors pads, sheets and blankets every day and decided to sleep in the recliner because at least I don't end up wearing it. I haven't slept more than 2 hours at a stretch since surgery in 2014 even with meds. My case is NOT typical as I went into the hospital for a clot in my right calf and left ICU 22 days later, after allergens administered against my will, missing a gall bladder, right ovary and large intestine, none of which NEEDED to come out when I entered the hospital. The doc believes that my "inability" to sleep is the result of transitional PTSD, (ya think!?!) but the problem of leakage certainly doesn't help. The doc and I are hopeful that eventually time will allow some peace in my mind. Right now I wouldn't enter a hospital if I were having a heart attack. My feeling is that I would rather roll my @$$ out into the street where I could see the truck coming at me....
Hope you are having better luck than I with your sleeping.
Omigosh, Dadnabbit...I have to say that i havent met anyone yet on this site that has an ileostomy due to other circumstances....me too...that is why I have had a temporary ileostomy since January of 2018....my case is absolutely not typical either...i understand completely about the 2 hours thing, and wow do I ever relate....
