Hi! So a couple of weeks ago, I had a partial blockage and since then, my stoma has significantly shrunk. It's pretty much flush with my skin and restracts during peristalsis. I am experiencing major leakage now and my skin is very irritated. It is so painful!!have an appointment with my stoma nurse tomorrow but I wondered if anyone had/has the same issues that I am having? Are there certain wafers/bags that you use? Hollister sent me samples of there convexity wafers but I am not sure how to use them. Also, can you use barrier rings with these types of wafers? Or does that defeat the whole purpose of wearing a wafer that helps the stoma "protrude"? Hope that makes sense. Thanks for your help!

Ok please disregard this question! You guys already answered it a couple of weeks ago and I completely forgot. I blame sleep deprivation  :roll:

No problem, Ann :) 

For those who want to refer back to the old thread, it's HERE.

I'm closing this thread to avoid confusion. 

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.
