Information To Those Asking About Stoma Retraction

Posted: Mon Jul 23, 2018 7:31 am

Have had an ileostomy for 22 years now.  Stoma retraction has happened quite a few times over the years.  Honestly have been able to trigger it to food allergies or a continuous supply of bacteria in water ( well water and just add peroxide pump and that will solve the the well water issue & if that is too expensive, adding peroxide to your drinking  water really helps, and it only has to be to the water that is not boiled, and possibly your bath water could benefit


For the food allergies, can have coffee but not have coffee with cream, and sunflower seeds  We can have food allergies with knowing about it.  It happens when I have more of the product, ie 3 or 4 cups of coffee or a whole bowl of sunflower seeds.  Had to eliminate eggs out of my diet.


But it so worth it, figuring these things out.  Been to the doctor and nurse on retraction, and they can't fix it, and I was not about to have another surgery as the problem can arise again.  

Been working great for me, so just want to share with others.
