Just want to thank everyone for their support and for sharing. I have been experiencing many issues with my ileostomy and pouching, from bad rashes to leaks within an hour, to burning and emotional breakdowns.
I have met a wonderful WOC nurse through my daughter, she is a nurse at this hospital that is a bit of a distance from my home but worth the drive. She has found a system that seems to be working well and my skin and stoma are finally healing. I think I am beginning to heal as well, I have so much support, that is the most important thing in the whole scheme of things. Thank you all and Good luck to everyone.
