Thanks for sharing! I think we can all imagine ourselves, home alone, stoma bleeding and thinking the worst! Glad to know it all worked out OK.
Did it hurt? I notice sometimes if I clean too agressively I sometimes bleed a little, but, I feel no pain. The doc told me there are no nerve endings there so that's why it doesn't hurt. Anyway all's well that ends well.
You are right -- no nerve endings, so I did not feel it. Good thing, too! Just gave me the eewie-jeemies!!! I too have made it bleed during cleaning, not meaning too. The only time I feel it is if it is right at the skin level and then I think it is the skin nerve endings I am feeling.
All is ok now. No bleeding all night. Yes, I checked it a couple of times throughout the day too - made me a bit nervous. I just stressed myself out over nothing -- lesson here is "Don't Stress" if you happen to do the same!!
I am many years past trying to do a backbend. But I was a gymnast back in jr high school. If I tried that now, I'd probably pass out with all the blood rushing to my head! Only you would think of that!!!
Thanks for the replies.
