So, I read the term pancaking and from what I read i think it refers to the stoma output collecting around the stoma and not moving down into the bag. Is that correct?
My stoma is just above my waistline and I am curvy (OK :-) FAT) and I have a terrible time with the output collecting there. Also, a lot of times, the out put is thick and the texture of wet clay. This texture causes more pancaking. Finally, my underwear and pants naturally fall on my waist and that is directly below the stoma.
Sometimes, I look down at my stoma area and see this huge lump there. It is not easy to camouflage that lump.
Are there solutions to this problem? What do you all suggest?
