I highly recommend the Coloplast Assura two-piece drainable EasiClose pouches and Extended Wear flanges. After my ileostomy surgery in Feb. '06, the ostomy nurse gave me a two-month supply of them. They worked so well, that I've never tried anything else. The adhesive is so good on the flange, that I only have to change it once a week. I can also spend hours swimming in a pool, and the adhesive still stays on. Maybe it's because they are Extended Wear. Anyway, I'm so confident with it staying on, that I'm going to spend all day at a waterpark tomorrow and have absolutely no worries! I agree with Shaz that everyone's skin is different, but I would definitely give them a try. Good luck!
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in '99 at age 28.
After 7 years of trying every med and diet on the market to achieve remission, nothing worked.
Finally had proctocolectomy and ileostomy surgery in '06 and am loving it.
I'm pain-free, med-free, and am very thankful to be healthy again.
