I have had my colostomy for one year now and all of a sudden the foods on my safe list are going off. After I eat something within minutes my bag will be so full that the poop will seep out and I will soon be covered in it. This has happened to me four times. One time I was at work! I don't know what is going on, I am getting frustrated. I thought on of the reasons for having an ostomy was so that you could go in public and not have to worry so much about going. But that is all quickly changing for me. Has this happened to anyone else? I am calling my GI tomorrow but it is a 6month wait list to see her. I just need to know if this has happened to anyone else, and if they are still able to live their lives, or are they back to being hermits not leaving their homes? HELP!
