I had a stoma bag on about two years, it's the best thing I had done. But I do have problems still, may have a faulty bag.
I do have problems, stomach pains. I get a lot of infections inside. Sometimes I have to change my bag maybe 8 times in 24 hours. I have had bag bust in bed. I get upset.
Sometimes I get little sores and bleeds. My stoma fills all times of the day, as it was like a set time (morning). If I have two cups of tea, then the bag fills to the top. Night time supper, one hour later the bag fills (why? ).
When I phone Rotherham prescriptions, there is a stoma nurse there - 01709 423 517.
For care I think say every 8 weeks the nurses should come out to check me, to see if everything is alright.
I may be wrong, but I don't think I am wrong.
Just a check.
