vballcl, welcome to Healing Well. I'm sorry you've had so many troubles since your surgery. Regarding your inverted stoma, I've heard that Convex Inserts can really help. For the skin issue, you can put Calmoseptine Ointment on your skin around your stoma to protect it from getting irritated. If you Google both items, you will see where you can purchase them. Also, there are several women here who have had babies post surgery, and everything was fine.
fmorr, welcome. I'm sorry you're having trouble, too. I have a permanent ileostomy, so I don't know what to do post reversal, but there are lots of people here who have had reversal surgery and will give you great advice. Have you told your surgeon about your troubles? Hopefully, you will get some relief soon. You might want to post your own question, so more people who have had reversals can see it.
Wishing you both the best, and please keep us posted on how you're doing.
Hi thanks for caring. Good idea to post my questions, so here we go:
I have been prescribed immodium - told to take up to 8 per day but still dont want to continue with this amount. Anyone know what I should be aiming for?
I have also got VSL priob drink which flushes out any infection but I have stopped taking them - is this okay.
In terms of the burning sensation (even when I want to pass wind) will this go away. What about the pain does this reduce through time.
Dont know what to eat for the best because as soon as I eat anything substantial the pain starts. Any suggestions?
Sorry for the long list but here hoping that someone will be able to help.
