be positive hiswill, it does get better
carlow i totally know that feeling! i used to get so pissed b/c my stoma was constantly putting out...even when i didnt eat. i started just wrapping my stoma in papertowel (folded) and trying to cut b4 taking the initial bag off, that way u can kinda gauge if its gonna fit ur stoma...if u cut to big by mistake, u should invest in the eakin seals...they work wonders, i used those when i was cutting
but i have to ask have u tried convatecs moldable flanges? no cutting! cuts so much of the hassle out of changing the bag, cutting was my biggest obstacle...
and i have had no leaks with this flange, it turtle necks up around ur stoma...i really feel like the spokeswoman for these things...if u can u should definitely order a sample and give em a try
most people get longer wear times with them as well
