The appliance, not the swimsuit.
I've been wearing a one piece b/c i like it to lay flat under my clothing and I don't like the hard plastic on a 2 piece. but I keep having leaks. It's really hard for me to tell when the leak started b/c I don't itch and it only minimaly stings. so based on someones advice, I'm trying a two-piece.
I'm using a hollister b/c that's what I have samples of. However, I only have the bags with vents. and I only have 2 bags. I've read that as soon as the vent gets wet, it fails. Does that mean it starts to leak there? Or does the vent just not work?
Since I only have 2 bags, and I want them to last a while, after I shower, can I rinse the old bag out and put it back on?
I can shower with the bag off right? and just keep the wafer on.
My ET nurse said not to rinse my bag out when I empty it b/c water will weaken the seal; if that's so, then how can I shower without a bag on? Wouldn't the same thing happen.
I think they sent me convex wafers, but I don't know why. unless they all are convex? I don't need them to be since my stoma sticks out pretty far.
I called coloplast today to get samples of the sensura and asura. or whatever they're called.
