Ugh, I hated my loop ileo. What a pain! Convex wafers, eakin seals...I used them all. For me, the combination of Convex wafers and paste worked the best. Eakins were too much for me. The good news about
loop ileos are that they are usually temporary! YAY! Also, I felt like mine got a bit better the farther out from surgery I was. So, chin up, try lots of systems, and remember step 3 is coming. Good days are ahead.
If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.
Jo - UC, total colectomy and ileostomy on August 24, 2007. Step 2 & ileosotmy switched to left side - May 27, 2008, and take down August 8, 2008. LIFE IS GOOD.
