Hodaya, Hello friend.
I wear a hernia belt from nuhope and love it. I don't sleep in it though because it just doesn't feel right. I wear it all day and take it off to sleep.
As far as wear time, I have to change the wafer every 3 days because the EAKIN or the ADAPT ring has already melted???? Neither one seems superior to me. I have even used tried using paste with the eakin or adapt ring and still no help!
I waited 4 days last change and my poor skin right around the stoma was burned up pretty bad. OUCH, it hurt when the water hit it. I used extra stoma powder and the no sting barrier and won't wait 4 days again.
I also rolled a piece of the Coloplast strip paste and squished it right around the edge of the stoma, right on top of the burned skin, and am hoping this will let the skin heal. I was going to change the wafer every other day, but I do not have enough wafers to do that, so I ordered more and am hoping my insurance will cover them.
Do you ever have this issue? My doctor said it is because it is a loop??? I am having surgery June 20 to have the loop changed into an end, so we will see.
