I had the pleasure of doing a video interview/chat with a fellow ostomate, Amber Wallace, and I’m so happy to be sharing this new series with you!
You’ve probably heard of the “crusting technique” if you’ve had your ostomy for a while. But what is it and does it actually work?
In this article, I’ll be answering those questions and more!
Anyone with an ostomy will tell you that sometimes their stoma will often act as if it has a mind of its own!

I had the pleasure of being a panelist during the “Living with an Ostomy 101” webinar that was hosted by Corstrata last month.
Ostomy surgery can be stressful, even when you’re prepared.
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.
