Colostomy - pastorfrank

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on November 14, 2012 View this journey (6 Experiences)

after the surgery, and getting used to the colostomy bags, and having to have someone come and replace the holder made me feel very incapable of caring for myself, and then when we would go out in public, invariably the clip on the bag would come loose and I would spill the contents all over myself and the floor, being a very embarrassing situation. I then went to the disposable daily pouches, and then the holder started coming loose more often.

    I went thru six months of learning to get to wear I am. Irragation is the only way to go
