Bag Change LIVE! - Living Daily With An Ileostomy Stoma...

So as you know I have a permanent Ileostomy Stoma AKA Fred! But what exactly is it? what does it look like? How do I clean, empty and change it? Does it leak? How do I stop itching?...

All these and many more questions have been asked over and over again, so now I will share all of this and my top tips for physically dealing with a stoma daily.

This is Freds video debut so I am a little nervous exposing this, it is a personal thing that to many may seem ugly, disgusting or dirty... but to me it has saved my life and how can i possibly hate or be ashamed of that!

I hope by sharing this and revealing all, I help others understand as well as overcome some issues you may be having with your stoma set up!
