My WOC Nurses were great and I've had a few adjustments over the years with my 'new' stomas each time, but I find the Coloplast extended wear works best with this one! I've almost always used and Eakin Seal (try both because they do work differently on each person) and a Sure Seal. You'll want to try the Sure Seal for running...I wouldn't take a step without it:) it's breathable and waterproof so the wafer doesn't lift with sweat. I'm not sure you'll like the stealth belt for running...friction...but if you are game, try it! I just fold mine up into my undies and run
I haven't had a problem yet...even my half marathon was a non issue
I carry a Bianca in my purse (or pocket) and spray it into the toilet before I empty...minty fresh...and not obvious!
It's good to know what you are getting into but don't request samples until you know how your stoma looks. That way you have a better idea what to ask for so it works for your situation.
Velcro closure and filters are a must and I always use a two piece appliance.
