Geez, no one told you about wound pouches? I can't wait to finish school and become a nurse. There's so many things out there that can make life easier, but health care professionals don't know about them or don't care enought to pass them along, and most are covered by insurance.
They could have saved you a lot of embarassment and probably would have been much more comfortable especially for the skin around them.
49 years old, CD since I was a child.
Six resection surgeries, permanent ostomy, adverse reactions to Remicade, finally off of Prednisone, hoping for a long remission from this last surgery.
