We've all had some leaks, and some embarrasing moment, my worst was the clip to the bag breaking and spilling down my leg at work, I survived though, that was 20+ years ago.
I think that is why you get a new clip, I use them now.
I keep a little squeeze container of Karaya powder in my car and desk, if I had a purse, it would be there. when I am away and have a leak I go into the rest room and lift the edge and squirt the powder in. I seals it up until I get home.
Hi cross stitch.
I am so sorry that you are having so many problems with leaks i can imagine that it could realy get you down at times.
what type of apliance do you use?and have you ever tried somthing like the Eakin seal.You fit it snugly around the stoma before putting on your bag.I have heard that it has helped many people because it is so good at preventing leaks.
Do you have a stoma nurse?or if not ask your supplier if they can get you the Eakin or somthing similer.The Eakin is made by Salters i think but other company's do things much the same.
Hi Cross Stitch
So sorry to hear about your leaks. I know how leaks can affect you. You didn't say how long you've had the ostomy. I agree with Sue about contacting ET nurse. After my surgery the leaks were constant.I determined that my stoma was retracting not so that it was flush but enough so that when I was lying down the stool was going under the wafer. I can only tell you what worked for me. I changed to a wafer with convexity.I also use the Eakin seals. I hope you figure this out .
