I have not had these issues since I am a new ostomate and mine is temporary. From what I have read they have different kinds of wafers. They make some for stomas that do ot protrude that much. You can look for them on any of the websites from the different ostomy manufacturers. I started with holister at the hospital and I have had pretty good luck only a few leakage problems but i have more complications currently. I still have my wound vac on and the wafer overlaps the dressing for that.
I did web surf and I hear that you can call or contact the companies and they may help out with samples. As far as hollister they have links right on the product page that say free sample. I have gotten a few things this way that have been helpful like their new image line of bags are covered with fabric. Once I get the wound vac off I am going to try this (since the wafer is a different one I dont want to try it til the vac is gone). I hope it will make the hot summer days more bearable. I think it will be more comfy than a warm plastic bag sticking to your leg.
