I’m trying a new product that was in my introductory kit... Coloplast Sensura flex. does this stick well not using the barrier ring, it looks like you can just stick it on and it will stay. Also is there not an accessory belt you can use with this, like you can for Hollister products.  If you use ..for lack of a better term...the stickem attachment without an accessory belt are you gonna feel tugging when it gets full.  are there more dangers of accidents then with Hollister barrier ring and accesory belt. Thanks

Hi Rick,

I have never used a belt. Have had my ostomy for two and a half years, and the adhesive on the plate has never failed - but if I am feeling the need for a little more confidence I put a little tape around the edges. I use a Hollister 2-piece with a barrier ring.

Hey Rick. All wafers are designed to just go on without any extra supplies. Barrier rings can be used when needed, but they are NOT necessary and can actually cause more issues if you are using them without any specific need.

The Flex system uses an adhesive coupling, so the bag and wafer connect with adhesive. I personally don't like adhesive couplings and prefer mechanical couplings. One advantage to the mechanical couplings is that you can attach a belt to it, as you've discovered. 

I do suggest emptying before the bag feels too heavy. The real "danger" with adhesive coupling systems happens if the coupling has wrinkles or channels in it (rather than being perfectly flat). This can come down to technique, and possibly luck! 

The wafer itself should be as reliable as most other products.
