Thats got to suck big time.
Get hold of your ET nurse, they will suggest what to use for it.
Sigmoid Colostomy / Crohns / Type 1 Diabetic / Ostioarthritus / Asthma / High Blood Pressure / High Colesterol / Migraines. Ain't life a joy?

Have you ever tried the stuff called duraderm? I used that when I ripped a big crater under mine and it healed in a couple of days! I was amazed cause I was wondering how that was gonna heal under there. Good stuff.
