ok since hollister threw me under the bus with the "new improved" (falling apart useless) bag, i have to try new things. so i got the coloplast and the convatec. i decided to try the convatec first, cause i like the bag better, even though i liked the coloplast flange better.
ok so its that moldable thing, and it's supposed to turtle neck right? well there isn't enough wafer to do that. it is almost the exact size of my stoma the way it comes. i don't know if i was supposed to but i put paste on it too. i did just what it said and put it on and all, then when i went to snap the bag on, it's really hard cause its flat against my stomach and i have no way to pull it up to get the bag on, if that makes sense.
and then the sure seal!!! how do yall wear a sure seal wtih them? the sure seal was way too big, so it wouldnt' go around the middle, so i had to cut it into four pieces and piece it around, so that it would go on. it took me sooo long to do it.
there has to be an easier way to put this system on, someone help me!
oh and i have the coloplast too, which i really like the wafer on it better, but i don't understand the bag, once you put it on these little tabs go togehter, then you can't take it off, so what if you don't have it on all the way the first time?
