I cannot catch a break. I finally had gotten to where I was having to change less. I was getting "normal"(ha). Then it all went belly up. The leaking is back, changing about 3 times a day. I am not doing anything different, one day all was going as well as expected and then out of the blue the leaks began. I am not leaking stool but it is a greasy liquid. Barring the normal challenges I am faced with, I am concerned about my supplies. According to Edgepark I am unable to request supplies until end of October. I have 20 pouches left and if I cannot get this leaking under control I will run out of pouches. I am hoping to order this item out of pocket.
I am also battling cramps to the point I need pain meds. I know that the stoma itself has no feeling but the area is so itchy that I am loosing it. I feel like ripping the stoma out. When I lay my hand gently over the stoma it is quite warm and sensitive to the touch. Having BMs are uncomfortable. THEY SHOOT HORSES DON'T THEY!!!!
As always, thank you for allowing me to vent.
