Hi there! I guess I'm the only one thus far that has had the oozy smelly stuff! My surgeon didn't think anything of it, as it was the fluids from the surgery...but it is wise to just run this by your doc to make sure he/she isn't concerned.
I did the same exact thing with the A&D and panty liners! Awww...the ointment made it feel SO much better! And you know, I really can't remember how long I had the ooze...I was in such shock and extreme pain that it really such a small matter at the time. I had my surgery laparscopically as well, and the area around my belly button oozed some too...it wasn't smelly though, but it looked similar to my bootie ooze. (I'm blushing a lot in this chit chat!)
I'm super glad you joined us ostomates! I named my stoma Penelope! So, WELCOME to our super cool club!!!!
My cat's name is Chloe! I love that name!
My husband and I played around with unique girl names during our pregnancy and Penelope was one we both liked but just couldn't bring ourselves to naming a child that in Mid-MO! So, the first name I thought of for my stoma was Penelope! And I LOVE her!
