I've been searching for a new one piece that will actually NOT LEAK for me and I found this company called Cymed.
On their website, it says the products were developed by an ostomate. And there is a testimony from this professional athlete guy (he surfs, climbs rocks, bikes, etc.).
The products look great, but the problem is that most of them are for colostomies, and I have an ileostomy. The output is so different, so I don't want to try product designed for a colostomy.
I ordered some one pieces, and tried my first one on tonight. It leaked within an hour of application.
I put another one on, but now I'm afraid to use them.
I was wondering if anyone else has used any of their products?
I'm supposed to go swimming on Thurs. It'll be the first time since the ostomy, and of course, I'm nervous.
We're going to a water park (me, my baby, and a friend).
I don't want to be embarrased. (I STILL can't spell embarrased- and why does the comp. always underline ileostomy?) .
