While I was in the hospital, one of the floor nurses suggested putting a Tic-Tac in my pouch to help control the odor. It sounds gross, but it does work and a cheap way to fight odor.
Hi, I'm new with forums etc. My husband had ileostomy 4 months with takedown 2/1/08. I'd like to respond to the last question about odor. We used M9 product from Hollister with good results. It's a little pricy at $25 for 8oz. But we thought it was worth it. Also, we didn't find a need for lubricant, but a friend said in the nursing home they sprayed Pam. Good luck.
Now, I'd like to find someone who knows about post takedown. My husband had his 2/1. He started eating low residue meals after being home a few days, but now has the sensation to go constantly, but goes only a little. We see his doc today. Anyone out there have experience with this? Thanks.
