Does anyone else fear leaving the house after stoma surgery? Am terrified of a ‘ leak or smell ‘ in public ?
Hi, I’m very newly diagnosed- 3 rd November ‘17 and surgery was 21 st November - so today I’m 14 days post op- walking around quite well now, but my biggest problem is psychological- I’m feeling absolutely ILL about having an accident with my ileostomy bag when out - noise, leak, smell?
Has anyone had any of these scenarios happen to them, and is so WHAT DID YOU DO?
Racked with fear?
