My stoma (Sybil) is an outtie, too. Due to weight loss prior to this surgery, my skin is not flat around my stoma, so the convexity is what works for me. I also use a skin cement (Osto-Bond) and have rarely had any leaks since. It's worth a try for you. You should be able to get a sample or two from your WOCN nurse, or even the company you order from. Good luck!

well I wasn't thinking dog, but it was a mental image!!
Bob, mine sticks out, too, but like others have said, it is because of the shape of my stomach. Check with your WOCN and see what they suggest. They may not have even thought of it, but you could always ask!
I hope you are feeling better!
