It's been 10 years since my surgery. I have tried pretty much everything. Over the last two years I change my appliance twice a month. So much better.
Glad you found the correct product. I’m totally new to this as I only had my surgery back in June but all is going grand and am back at work again. Confidence renewed I’m back to my old self. Finding it very easy to manage myself and have rarely seen my Stoma Nurse. Keep thinking positively and positive things will happen that’s my outlook.
My grand daughter had the same thing done two years ago and her surgery was so different from mine. She was also up and running shortly after. My incision started 4 inches above my belly button and ended 4 inches below my belly button. I was 12 days in the hospital and it took me 3 months to recover. With an infection in my incision to problems with my appliance the recovery time was not pleasant. But I have never regretted having it done. From my first attach to time of surgery was 7 years. We tried everything but nothing worked. Now with the new appliance I so happy. Being 73 has many challenges, but keeping busy and active is working for me. Your outlook will take you to many great places. Keep smiling.
