Hi everyone it has been a long time since I have been on this site. I got my first ostomy in Aug of 2010 about a year later it died and I needed a new one the second one got a hernia in it so I have been in and out of the hospital for about a year or so. I am now on my third ostomy and they moved it to the left side of my body I am not happy with this one it is much shorter and I needed a whole new appliance. I also have 10 stitches in my stomach from the hernia and they sewed my butt. I have been home recovering for about 7 weeks I am not comfortable with this bag but they say it works. For me it does not I have had too many accidents all in a period of seven weeks.
