Yes, finally got to see my ostomy nurse, who could barely remember me since i hadn't seen her for almost a year.
So i show her the area and her first words are " oh my, you poor dear". Then she says " you must be in pain". Well duh, probably wouldn't be here if i wasn't. She hooks me up with some meds. But as she was checking out the area she says that i smell good. Like i've said before i'll pretty much shower in body spray all day just to keep my mind at ease about the smell. She asks if i use any sort of deodorant for the bag. I said no but i said i've heard the hydro peroxide can work well. He next words were " nooooooooo". hah hah She said it can damage your stoma. And before i said anything else she says " Peroxide, mouthwash, you don't want that coming in contact with your stoma too often"
Just telling ya what she said. I'm not sure either way. I tried the peroxide and it didn't seem to do anything, but who knows.
I'll stick to smelling like morning dew. I'd rather over do it on the spray than smell like poo thats been in a bag all day.
