The term “burping” isn’t something you’d expect to go hand in hand with ostomy care, but it is something that ileostomates and colostomates should familiarize themselves with.
I got meet up with two great gals to discuss life with an ostomy on their “Guts and Glory” podcast!
October 7th, 2017 – It’s another World Ostomy Day, and this year I’d like to discuss the truth about having an ostomy and ways to reach acceptance.
A question I get asked often is, “How many times should I be emptying my ostomy bag?”.
A type of product I usually recommend to ileostomates and colostomates who have loose or liquid output are gelling sachets. Eakin has their own called Perform, and that’s what I’ll be covering in this review!
Stealth Belt or ComfortBelt? I get asked which belt is better about 22346145 times a day (more or less), so it’s time to finally put these heavyweights in the ring and see who comes out on top!
I love wearing my ostomy bag sideways, but some people may find it difficult to adjust to, especially when it comes to emptying their appliance.
“Pancaking” has been a problem for many ostomates and any solution would be welcome.
