First time I’ve had an appliance failure at the office, and this one was doozy. Long story short, it wasn’t any fun, but I handled it and survived. Of greater concern are the two full-fledged bowel movements I had through my J-Pouch. My theory is the stoma/appliance backed up, causing the blowout and blocking the intestinal diversion, forcing the waste through to my pouch. I’m waiting for confirmation from my surgeon, but hopefully that’s not a big deal.
