Provolunteer, it was seeping out under the ring I was using then I tried paste and that was disasterous it would itch from the moment it got put on and believe me I spent ages putting it on with all the advice I got from here but would leak within hours of putting on. However I saw the nurse last week and she gave me loads of different pouches to try and things got even worse until I tried the convex and touch wood I've had no leaks in days! amazing she says to try without the ring but I'm so fed up of leaks and this is working I'l try that another day I'm still changing every other day which is a long time for me but I'm going to aim for longer now so very pleased about that No chance of sweating it off here it never gets warm enough haha. I so hope your problems sort out it's soul destroying isn't it. I have to say I actually wouldn't mind having this ostomy if it wasn't for the leaking but then easy for me to say hopefully soon it should be gone.
Pepperann27 life can be so cruel and looking at your write up I see you have gone through so much. I so hope you can have yours reversed it seems to me it's about time life gave you a break I wish everyone on here could get a break there's just too much suffering yet it's amazing how cheerful everyone seems to be.
Convexity, and then Eakin Seals, solved a mysterious leak problem that just popped it's ugly head up for me, after having my ileostomy for many years. Don't know why, just happened for me. I was frustrated and turned to this forum and found my answers! We are here to talk, listen, and empathize each other. Don't you feel better posting your questions, issues and actually getting responses saying, "Oh, that's me too" or "yes, I've been it those shoes". "Try this", "try that", etc. It makes me feel like I have this extended family that I can turn to when NO one else GETS it.
So, the real question for you, how's your wear time with the new appliance?????
