Just had surgery on Jan 31st. because of UC. It is the first of three. Next surgery they will make the jpouch. Having a little bit of a hard time adjusting to the ostomy, but I love being able to eat again!! Here are some questions I have:
What do most people use one or two piece?
My skin seems to have a hard time adjusting to ostomy, does the skin "toughen" up? My skin seems to be very itchy because of paste and rings.
Does anyone have any problems with their stoma not sticking out enough?
Do you use those sticky round rings or just paste and a bag?
Do you have alot of irritation at first around your stoma?
How many people have trouble with bladder waking up and working right again after surgery? I had to go home with a cathater :( Being taken out tomorrow. Hoping it works.
