Me too, I output a lot in the AM before I eat - which I don't understand because I am supposed to change my appliance first thing in the morning when I wake up - supposedly when there is little output. Often, it takes me so much longer as I am cleaning and recleaning myself from stoma output when I am applying adhesive remover and skin prep, or powder. I know that volume of food is an indicator - but not allways. I am searching for a pattern I can rely on and can't seem to find one. I feel like I have tried to explain this to my WOC nurse and my surgeon, and they both seem to put the question off saying that I am still a newbie at 7 months post surgery. I find that not really an answer - or is the answer that over years a pattern emerges?
I am so confused!
love to all
