02 Jul Annelies’ experience
Because of her ileostomy, Annelies has trouble showering without any stoma materials. As the ileostomy keeps producing, bathrooms visits are, to say the least, very unpleasant – leave alone taking a warm and relaxing bath.
Every part of the skin deserves attention
“Now that I have a stoma, I notice that the surrounding skin isn’t as clean as it was before. Next to that, I get a lot of leakages. Because I’m not able to clean the skin properly and get rid of the glue residue, my stool keeps getting a way to get past the appliance, causing the leakage.”
Annelies is happy to have Stomydo® by her side, and to give some focused attention to that particular piece of skin. “You might not think about it right away, but from the moment you get a permanent stoma, you deprive the surrounding skin of oxygen. I noticed that the skin got a little bit grey, and in the summer I would feel unsanitary due to the sweltering feeling caused by the weather. On such moments, you just want to take care of that particular piece of skin, because I want my skin to last as long as possible. Stomydo® gives the peristomal skin the attention that it deserves.”
Pleasantly massaging jets
Apart from the sanitary feeling, Annelies is also happy to leave all the hassle of the producing ileostomy behind her. “I don’t have to be afraid to get any stool on the rest of my body when freshening up. Glue residue is easily soaked of, so that leaves me with plenty of time to enjoy the relaxing, pleasantly massaging jets.” And as if that wasn’t enough, Annelies is saving a lot on materials. “Since I started using Stomydo®, I’ve only used appliances and waste bags.”
According to Annelies, the skin is irreplaceable and we should treat it with care. She is happy to have found a way to avoid any other skin problems and wouldn’t be able to live without Stomydo® anymore. “I love taking care of my stoma with its ‘own shower’. It gives me a pleasant and sanitary feeling; for just one moment it feels like there is nothing on my stomach at all!”
