I am SUCH a chicken about
this!!!! My stoma is soooo active, there isn't a time I could schedule that would be "quiet" stoma time. My stoma is like a two year old - never naps, always busy. I can't even do some yoga positions, because I'm afraid of being on my stomach. How is it that stuff doesn't cause leaks by getting all squished up around the stoma area? Even when I lay on my side, it all kinda "piles up" right by the stoma, and doesn't fall "into" the bag. God, I would loooove to lay on my stomach, but I'm so scared. Does anyone who has a highly active, pretty solid-ish (as solid as we get, LOL), out put really
lay on their stomachs?? And why am I so scared of this?
