I only ever visit the hospital once in a blue moon, however my skin has been suffering so off I went to see the lovely Stoma Nurse Jane Matten. The stoma care department at Derriford Hospital is great and the help and advice you receive is brilliant. The staff are kind, caring and knowledgeable even though I visit rarely (generally when I have a problem) it’s always a pleasure. I wanted to get the sizing of my Stoma right I’m always advising others to get their Stoma measured and thought it was about time I took my own advice.
Billy has changed such a lot over the years he is small and his little spout is facing upwards. I’ve always had a dip in the skin by the Stoma i guess it’s what makes everybody’s Stoma unique. So now I’m resized and using the Coloplast SenSura Mio one piece. I am not a huge fan of the one piece however I am going to be trying some different two pieces once my skin has healed, the reviews will be on the Ostomy product review page soon. I have known Jane for a long time we had a little catch up and my visit timed just right as she is retiring this week she will be missed by all the patients she has helped over the years.
Once my skin has healed I will be doing a bag change film on YouTube so stay tuned for that.
