29 Jun Henriette’s experience
Henriette’s experience (58)
Home nurse Linne Jacobs was an intern for home care organisation ‘de Zorgboog’ when she met Henriette, one of her patients. When she heard her story, she decided to try and find a solution to Henriette’s problem herself. There had to be something out there that could help her?
In the months before, Henriette used a hydrocolloid bandage to protect and cure the scabs and surrounding skin. Although that seemed to be the right solution at first, nurses still had to change the bandages twice a day because of the many leakages. This caused a lot of damage and pain to the skin, and greatly limited Henriette in her daily life.
Something had to be done
“At one point, Henriette just didn’t dare to go outside anymore”, explains Linne. “When she had no other choice, she covered her ostomy with a thick layer of sanitary towels, to cover up the direct results of a leakage.” “I just didn’t know what to do anymore”, says Henriette.
Searching for other methods on the internet, Linne came across Stomydo®. “We were able to test Stomydo® for 30 days. After a few days, results were already visible”, says Linne. Me and my colleagues were stunned. Ever since we started using Stomydo®, Henriette didn’t get any leakage and her skin had visibly improved.
Quality of life
“To show the effect Stomydo® has had, we took some pictures of the surrounding skin from beginning to end of the trial period”, says Linne. The pictures (taken on day 1, 14 and 30) clearly show the improvement. I showed them to my colleagues as well, everyone was very excited about the results.”
Henriette is very happy with the effectiveness of Stomydo®. “I love this device, it gives me the opportunity to go outdoors again without having to worry. All in all, you might say the quality of my life improved, and I can recommend it to all the fellow ostomates. It has brought me many good things, but I think it’s also helpful for people who don’t have any problems yet. Stomydo® gives you a fresh and clean feeling.”
What does Stomydo® do?
The Stomydo® ostomy shower is a user-friendly, handy device that ensures a quick but thorough cleaning. Just connect the ostomy shower to your tap and put the transparent cap over your stoma. Take care of your ostomy at your own sink, without the hassle of undressing yourself completely. Using Stomydo® only takes a few minutes. A good opportunity to take some well-deserved me-time!
