Re: Struggling!

I really struggled at first too. Some days it's easier than others. Have you found an ostomy nurse that can help? My provider gave me a referral and they were awesome. They taught me how to irrigate, which works pretty well for me. Hang in there! It helped me to read through a bunch of the articles online here to get more ideas and to realize I wasn't alone. Becky
