Thank you for the information,

Mucus leakage can be a side effect after colostomy.

Symptoms can vary from person to person.

Doctors sometimes prescribe steroid suppository to decrease the secretion.

If you have not tried it yet, you can discuss with your doctor.

If there is continuous leakage, pad can be used, I think you have tried it by this time already.

Glycerin suppository can be used for complete evacuation of mucus,so that you may not have continuous leakage.

Sitting in the toilet daily as required can clear up the mucus discharge and prevent messing up.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.
