Yesterday I had my first flange failure, this is the first time I had just ate breakfast (two eggs and one piece of sausage) when I felt like I was going, in just a few minutes I could feel wetness on my stomach, I went to the bathroom and found out the flange came loose on the side, when I took it off the stool was under the flange, it was the nasty cold black watery stuff, I can't figure out why it went under the flange, I had just changed it that morning, I use Hollister and am reading a lot of negative comments about Hollister on this site, should I consider another brand or was this a fluke?
5 weeks with new perm. ileostomy due to crohns
4 bowel resections since 1984
Colostomy in 1988, worked out fine until this year when the crohns came back with a fury.
