Stomas - fluid leaking

I have two stomas. A Urostomy and A high output one, officially a colostomy but I have 1.2 m of small bowel only. I have a clear liquid which constantly leaks from my vagina so I have to wear pads as well as having two bags. Any idea what this fluid is and where it comes from? (Bobbie)

Re: Stomas - fluid leaking

Sorry for the delay in reply. If you have fluid leaking vaginally then this requires investigation - i would usually do a CT scan to see if we can identify the source and before that we can send a sample of the fluid for testing to see if it is urine. I am limited in terms of what i can advise given the information recieved but it sound like your GP needs to send you to a urologist - hope helpful.
