My colostomy is at my belt line on my stomach (because I was pregnant at the time) and because of this, I often get leaks because I am bending there.  I currently use the Coloplast products they gave me in the hospital but I have heard that there are some really good flexible flanges that mold to the skin and cause little leakage.  Can anyone suggest a product they like?

I used the Hollister Flextend with good success. My stoma was near my belly button and would often leak there. A friend on this forum suggested using an Eakin seal in conjunction with the flange and it worked great. The Eakin seal comes in a disc shaped form. I would cut a pie shaped piece and place it in the crease near my belly button and then apply the flange. The Eakin seal held it from leaking up to 6 days. I also used the stoma adhesive paste with good success. Good luck!
