I use both paste and rings because I am still getting burns right around my stoma. I tried using the eakin seal just like it is by squeezing it over my stoma, but this caused it to swell to such an extent, that it went over my stoma and my stoma then pumped the output underneath the wafer....this was a nightmare as I had eaten and it took me forever to get another bag on.
I much prefer the eakin SLIM seals, but even with these, I have to smash them down to make them thinner....
I just got some samples of the Hollister adapt ring, so I am trying that one next.
Anyone know how to prevent the burn right around the stoma?
I alternate between the New Image Hollister and the Moldable Wafer from Convatec, but just got some samples from Coloplast, so I will be trying those next.
Diagnosed w/colonic inertia, obstructive defecation syndrome, anismus, rectocele, and intussusecption
2005-hysterectomy w/pelvic prolapse repairs
2010-subtotal colectomy, rectopexy, and temporary diverting loop ileostomy. Parastomal hernia discovered in November, so more surgery, probably end ileostomy with relocation of stoma.
