Good info. Makes sense that an NG tube is different than a breathing tube!
I got home from the hospital last night, doing pretty well. Yep, the blood pressure is back to normal (I swear it's the constant fluid drip in the hospital!) and feeling pretty good. The worst part is the soreness around my mid section from the old stoma, makes it hurt when I cough, or sneeze, etc. Otherwise, I'm doing pretty well.
As far as output, not too much leakage at this time and went to the bathroom, without feeling an urgent need, and was able to empty the pouch on command, at least this time!
