Sam has been decanned but his stoma is still open and requires a dressing. I change the dressing daily and clean around the stoma. However, he is still getting some secretions up through it and they are quite dry and hard (sorry
). What is the best way of getting rid of these? I don't really want to poke anything into the stoma if I can help it. I'm doing my best with a piece of gauze and some saline but can't get rid of them all. anyone got any tips??
