I feel your pain on the leakage issue. I had three leaks in one morning a few days ago after suffering from a leak every day leading up to it. I am now pretty nervous about going out, but just have to plan for the worst and hope for the best. My ostomy is quite noisy, but I just hold my stomach and blame it on being hungry. The diet thing drives me crazy. I don’t know how you manage it, but it sounds like you are working on it. Great job! You have way more experience with an ileostomy than I do. I just try to piece together tips and go through trial and error. How is your skin doing with the leaks?
