Back from seeing the Nurse.  Guess what??? She only told me everything that all of you have been telling me here on the Forum.  yeah I could have saved myself a trip to the clinic!!  (Seriously)...The problem I had been having with mucous...perfectly normal like y'all said.  She also told me that if it became a pressure and feels like it wants to but won't come out, that I can use a glycerin suppository...that it was perfectly safe and would move things out that should be coming out.  Just thought I would pass that on to anyone having the same situation.  Also she recommended the eakin seals instead of the paste to hold wafer on. (better seal and less irritating)  NOW I know what they are... lol....Other than that,, all is well...still quite raw around stoma but with the mycostatin powder she said it should clear up.  I only go back to see her in January.  YAY!!  I'm not so smart though...she asked me if I had any supplies on me and I showed her the wafer and pouch I carry with me.  I thought she only wanted to see what I was using.  HAH!!  I thought I would go there and come home with some free samples...instead she used the one that I had with me!!  tongue Have a great day y'all!
