I have Both A Colostomy and a Urostomy i got them last November,
I found them pretty hard at first to get used too , not the fact that i had them , because basically they are easy to accept if thats how you are going survive cancer, but just getting used to the changing of pouches &
Urostomy was the worst , because of where the Docs put my stoma near my belly button i used seals with my pouch but it leeked nearly every night, then i tired a paste but it still leeked, and if i did any physical work like gardening ect, it would leek too, it was really getting me down,, but then i thought i would try the pouches without the extra stuff and Bingo ! now i dont have accidents ( Fingers crossed),
The stoma Nurses told me i could still wear the same clothes as i did before the op but i cant i wear 1 size larger so to accommidate my pouches comfortably.
Only other thing is i dont go out at night cause thats when my Colostomy likes to do its thing, i could but i feel better if i am at home
, Dont know if i am any help to you but thats my little story
