My Jejunostomy feeding tube saved my life, but the bile leakage left my skin in a miserable condition, a source of constant pain that has no
relief. Like millions of people worldwide, my feeding tube will be in my body for the rest of my life and it will keep leaking indefinitely.
Caustic bile leakage has been causing skin breakdown around the site since its placement 6 years ago, and after trying every product I could find,
there were no solutions on the market that solved my problem. I decided to tackle this problem in the way I know best- combining my lived experience with my chemistry knowledge. I spent about six months deep in natural products chemistry, looking for ingredients that are readily available, safe, and would provide the most benefit. The goal was to create a powder that would soak up leakage and draw it away from the skin, so that the leakage causing skin breakdown could not cause further damage, and be able to absorb a significant volume with a small amount. In addition, my powder needed to gel together, not stick to the skin, and be free of irritants and animal products. Once I came up with a formula and tested it, my powder which we lovingly call stoma saver was born. I have been using it every day since it was made, and the skin around my stoma is no longer horribly burnt and raw. Going just an hour without it brings the pain back as leakage burns my skin. Realizing that I was not alone in this, my family and I have set out to get it on the market and into the hands of others who need it, and now that we are patent pending, we are so close to being able to do just that. Across the world there are people like me, from infants to the elderly, dealing with the leakage from feeding tubes and living with the pain of skin breakdown, just waiting for a solution.
