My question is, how do I know if I am satisfied with what product I am using.
I left the Hospital with Hollister, filled out for bunch of free stuff through the mail from diffrent companys, and have been using the Coloplast 2pc systems for about 3 weeks.
When I used the Hollister 1pc waffer type, I would leak in a matter of hours. Maybe I was doing something wrong? I didn't think so.
The type I use now is a 2pc drainable that consist of a convext "waffer" and the bag locks on to it. Seems to be doing good considering I have to keep up with a 5 & 2 year old and do what ever my pregnant wife wants me to do.
All I do is; clean of course, prep the waffer for my stoma with some paste, apply a skin barrier around the "site", and apply. Seems to hold up for about 3-4 days.
Is there a better product? Is there a better way?
