Hi Anne, Keep downing the liquids, Eric or one of the others who have had experience of a blockage will be best placed to give more advice. I would not hesitate to go back to ER if this continues. Make sure you use adhesive remover and a barrier wipe to be kind to the skin. if the stoma is sunken a ring or seal will help with the leaks. it may be a case for a convex wafer if the stoma stays low. Do you have a stoma nurse who can help? also Eric has a blog on blockages. I know when we have a leak and doing an unexpected change it can be easy to rush, just take yer time and do it well.

Hi Ann,

What you're describing sounds like a blockage to me.

If you're continuing to experience the retracted stoma, nausuea, pain, and liquid output, another ER visit might be in order - and speak with someone who knows stomas! Not all ER people know enough about what's normal and what's not when it comes to ostomies. 

 

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.

Ok will do, Eric! I so very much appreciate your help with this. Please let me know if you ever end up in Florida again. I would love to meet you in person.   :-)

In response to the question, " what's an immersion blender ?":

I looked it up on Amazon and it's available between  $9 and $75. Mine is in the $ 20 range.

Walmart , Target and others also carry them.

It is used to break up hard fiber into small pieces that can pass through our intestinal tract. It blends soups , dessert and whatever you wish IN THE SAME POT. It's a very handy kitchen tool.

Thanks Eric! Things seem to be better now....just dealing with a retracted stoma still. (And you're right...I don't think the ER really knew what he was talking about, God bless him).
