So this is the end of The IBD and Ostomy Support Show’s okay lets face it Louise’s crazy idea of bag roulette. I just thought I would take the time to think about what I have learnt overall from this little for me “experiment” on the pouches other than Louise is a loveable mad scientist? Read more
As you may remember I ordered two different Coloplast SenSura Mio two piece appliances when we started the bag roulette trial and review.

So when I saw the stoma nurse this week we noticed that my skin doesn’t like barrier sprays. Be warned naked stoma pictures straight off the bat in this post!
So I went to empty my bag and noticed it looked sore around the stoma. I always have a quick look through the flap. This time I noticed a different area had been a bit red and sore. I figured I would just change the bag and have a proper look. *Naked stoma photo* Read more

So off we toddled to the Friarage, 00Steve and Ra-Ra stayed in the car watching Mickey Mouse (much to his dismay) Read more
