  • Illiostomy hell - General Ostomy Support Issues - Ostomyland Community
    do and it was working great for awhile and I don t know what happened to get to where I m at now Yeah explain the wafer thing and your set up I ve used hollister in the past and I like their adhesive coverage but they leak too and more expensive I order from edge park My Medicare helps but still expensive especially when you start going thru bags like I am Thanks for your help Share this post Link to post Share on other sites Clare Bryant 315 Clare Bryant The 500 Club 315 898 posts Location Idaho USA Posted 16 Nov 2015 Wafer is just another term for flange the waxy like substance that adheres to your skin next to the stoma I haven t used a one piece since being released from the hospital after surgery when they showed me the two piece durable rubber flange and liquid adhesive that was the system they knew about then where I was The barrier sheets are the same material as the eakin rings they are just in a 4x4 or larger squares I cut them up in strips and roll them in to worms like play doo and then stick them to the back of the flange in a shape that will mirror the wrinkles and folds in my belly Here s a three pictures of what I do Some of this barrier material is almost and 1 2 inch high by the time I get done I hope this helps I also warm this up with a hair dryer to taper the barrier material down to the wafer out the outside edges towards the tape And I heat the this up before I put it on just so it s good and warm to the touch in both cases After I have put on the appliance and press it down for a minute or so I use karaya paste between the edge of the hole in the appliance and the stoma to protect the skin right next to the stoma That s why I like the two piece and I can renew the karaya paste everyday when I start my day This is Hollister karaya paste and not the sticky stuff from coloplast I realize this can t be done with a one piece After figuring all this out in the early months I now go a week between changing the flange I don t remember the last time I had a flange leak and I ve only had about 3 tupperware seal failures in the last year and usually less than that I think I wasn t careful when I rolled over in bed on those occasions I hope this helps Glad to help anyway I can Share this post Link to post Share on other sites Closesu 1 Newbie Members 1 9 posts Posted 17 Nov 2015 Wow that looks like 40 yrs of experience I kind of understand but not fully I use similar rope adhesive that I adhere to the flange and heat skin then press on and wait one minute I don t think the rope stuff makes that big difference I don t have one on now and it s holding up fine I ll prob look into a 2 piece next time I order I never know what this thing is gonna do but if I keep it empty it def cooperates better I m def gonna get the bigger bags I could use the room I only eat once a day at evening so I don t have a lot of output till nighttime Thanks for the pics and the advice Mike Clare Bryant likes this Share this post Link to post Share on other sites laurence 211 Advanced Member 500 The 500 Club 211 569 posts Location Montreal Quebec Canada Posted 19 Nov 2015 Mike Eating only once a day and in the evening to boot Is that the best idea given your condition Perhaps you should ask your doctor about that Good Luck Laurence Clare Bryant likes this Share this post Link to post Share on other sites Closesu 1 Newbie Members 1 9 posts Posted 20 Nov 2015 Probably not but I m just not hungry I started eating breakfast yesterday Just cereal but it s something Thanks By the way I love your profile pic He s my favorite Good one Share this post Link to post Share on other sites Closesu 1 Newbie Members 1 9 posts Posted 22 Nov 2015 What bags would y all reccomend for me These colon last bags I have now are terrible Adhesive comes off every night 2peice or something Thanks Share this post Link to post Share on other sites Clare Bryant 315 Clare Bryant The 500 Club 315 898 posts Location Idaho USA Posted 23 Nov 2015 edited I use the Hollister centerpoint lock system It s a little larger and bulkier than other setups By larger and bulkier I mean the ring of the two piece tupperware ring is not as discreet as other setups I also use a latex adhesive that is a brush on type that comes in a can I put this on around the stoma it has to dry for 4 or 5 minutes I find it really bonds and protects the skin but it s not for everyone It was the stuff I was given way back when and have tried the out of the box wafers and I like the combination of products for my personal preference One really important thing is to get the area around the stoma really free of oily residue The last wipe and dry that I do is with isopropyl alcohol and a dry cloth It s a hard learning curve at first There are a lot of failures but pretty soon you will fail better until you succeed Good luck Edited 23 Nov 2015 by Clare Bryant Share this post Link to post
