Convexity...I thought so!!! My stoma is the same way, and I couldn't live without it:) Did you go with a one or two piece appliance? The benefit to two piece is you can change out the pouch if you get a longer wafer wear time...pouches deteriorate faster.
Yes, you can shower...you can use the "press n seal" if you feel better, but I've showered for YEARS with everything on, and NO problems. I like the way the SureSeal keep my wafer dry, so I use that, but I can be lazy and not put one on! You could look that up in your supply catalog if you are interested...The "pink tape" is waterproof and you could "picture frame" the edges to keep them down...you can find that too in the catalog (I don't know it's real name, sorry)
If you use a hairdryer, use the lowest/warm setting...hot can melt things!
So glad I found someone like me. I feel so alone, but I finally found an Ostomy nurse who I will see on Monday. The ostomy nurses at the hosp told me I would have to use a one piece because my stoma is flush with skin and because I have such a small stoma. I think I have this straight. So I ordered a box from Edgepark this morning and I got a free box (they are old and probably won't hold) from the local pharmacy. My bag is hard at stoma so that it pushes stoma out.
What SureSeal? What is pink tape?
I think I will use the press and seal until I get fitted properly. I am so tired and discouraged by leaks. No leaks today tho
