Went in to have a baby in October and ended up with a cesarean and an illeostomy, after my bowel perforated. I now have to wait for a reversal which will be at the end of April. I do not like this bag at all, because of the leaks etc. I have the district nurses still coming in to dress my laparotomy wound as it got infected!!!!!!!. How do you all cope with showering and changing the bag. I change it every other day. It is not very easy when you have a screaming baby and trying to change the bag. Any suggestions. I get quite miserable about all this.
