To get out of bed you can roll first on the side and push you up with the arm against the bed. I don’t use the heavy belt around my belly because I cannot bear it, but I got some Comfizz panties that prevent the stomy bag to hang on the skin.

All the best,

The stoma nurse had me try a two piece bag, much longer and heavier, pulls more. There is a home nurse coming tomorrow to oversee bag change, check wounds. Did you have a nurse?
I climb into bed on my knees and do the two handed push up from my side to get out.
Glad you are home too Claudia, you were quiet for awhile.
