So I've been using Stomahesive since I got out of the hospital, but Ive noticed that after like 3 days that the bag seal kinda starts to peel up around the stoma.
I keep hearing about eakin seals and the seals from hollister and stuff, but I was wondering, do you really have to use paste/seals to keep the bag on? I mean I know people use that stuff to fill in dips and whatnot, but my skin doesn't have any dips or odd folds.
I still don't know if I like one piece or two piece yet. I like the two piece cause of the belt but I noticed the flange sticky area is a lot smaller than the one piece sticky area.
In other news I went to my surgeon yesterday and I have the j-pouch test in two months. He also told me that when I was in the hospital for the second time that the blockage was actually caused from dehydration. He said my body didn't have enough water to unblock the obstruction. I was wondering about that cause when I was in the hospital they gave me about 20+ of those IV things before I started going to the bathroom normally.
