While in Geelong Hospital this week I had a visit from the stoma nurse and he was excellent, as was the rest of the medical care I received – very thorough and personal. The Stoma nurse was concerned that my stoma is herniating and there are pressure bruises because of the type of stoma bag I have been using. He gave me some new bags and information on how to minimise further herniation. He also supplied me with a stoma support belt.
In the end I was glad I had the bleed so that I could get this vital piece of information.!
