Hi everyone, well the sore skin saga continued  had to change bag last night at 8.00 and at midnight still hadn't managed it got myself totally stressed out and ended up in A&E on gas and air, morphine couldn't touch the area it was so sore they put this parafin cream on to help the skin heal  had to sleep with it just draining it looked better this morning and the stoma nurse came and sorted me out with new bags  the problem was i was still cutting the wafer to 25mm but my stoma hole has shrunk to 22  so the normal skin was getting inflammed feeling better now  though. thanks guys for your replies to my last post.

Yeah pretty sure its Accident and Emergency thats what it is here in Australia! Glad your feeling better crohnielass, and hope it continues to improve for you. I had a similar problem and had to go down to 20mm pouch and that helped a lot.
