I am so frustrated with my illeostomy. It changes size & then I get the burning red sores break down etc. Nobody told me much of anything when I got the bag. They showed me how to put it on & said to be careful not to make it too tight or I would kill it. Put on the skin prep as close as possible but don't touch it. I did all that but it just seems to be constantly irritated I guess because it is constantly changing size. I only have about 3 weeks left to my take down. I can't wait. I was really positive & recovering so well but then about thurs. of last week It seemed like things were getting worse instead of better. I am using the Convatec gentle touch two piece. The piece that is attached to me the whole thing burns is uncomfortable & feels like is pulling. Maybe I just need to get used to it. The nurses don't seem to think it is that big of a deal. Maybe I am having a reaction to the skin prep uh...duh. My insurance doesn't cover anything because it is a temporary need. I called Hollister for samples but by the time they get here I shouldn't need them anymore. The Dr. said everything is on track & this should all settle down when it stops resizing. Sorry to ramble on I am just so new to this I don't know what to do or what is normal. How long until it stops re sizing?
