blueglass~hang in there...you'll get it all figured out
You've gotten some great suggestions! I am a believer in 'less is more' so I don't use a lot of product...I really only use stoma powder.
It really sounds like it is the way your stoma is changing/works that could be causing the problems. Do you have a loop, end or end loop ileo? The end is definitely easier...I have an end loop ileo now and it has been the most difficult to figure out
If you can, watch how your stoma moves...it may give you some ideas!
You are also far enough along that the changing should be almost finished. Have you been measuring it? If you have a loop, make sure you are not completely covering the lower hole...that does still function and the mucous could be weakening the area.
I hope things settle down...let us know how it goes!
