I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to neutralize the gas coming from the stoma. I hate the noise it makes and it gets embarassing. Just wondering if their was anything I could do....Happy Halloween all

A firm hand or arm over the stoma will help muffle the noise.  I suspect it is more obvious to you than to others  .. but you can always shoot a disgusted look at another person, or scold the dog.  If anyone hears and shoots ME that disgusted look, I simply say "Sorry, uncontrollable ostomy."  Nuff said.

There are OTC meds; Beano, GasX, etc that can also help with excessive gas.  Devrom (?) I think is the oral med for both gas and odor.  What kind of ostomy to you have?

Welcome to HW, hope this helps ... :-)
