To answer your questions:
I've never tried any other products, so I'm not sure if any of them would work. I contacted convatec to get some samples today, so I am hopeful about
that. They are sending me some convex eakin seals as well as some convatec products. My skin is incredibly sensitive, so I am guessing that just about
anything with adhesive on it would make me react, if not at first, probably within a few weeks. I have never heard of adhesive spray...how exactly do you use that? I have heard that the less you use on your skin before applying the wafer, the better.
Yes, I use paste, and no, my skin isn't rough or anything. It's just regular, with no real creases or anything. My stoma is a little less than 1 inch in diameter and sticks out about
Christine, what exactly is Nystop?
NASCARon, if you can help me, please do! I'd love any feedback or ideas you have. Thank you all so much.
