Thank you Eric for the ostomy information and videos. My wife will be getting a colostomy in 8/11/2020. The information and presentations on this site is extremely helpful for my wife and me.

HI. One problem I have you answered last week, if my bag leaks this leaves a residue of stickiness on my skin, this is hard to remove my skin ends up red and sore, so have ordered a remover.
In the Summer it is very hot here so I have problems with my bag tape adhering to the skin.
Most people after having their bladder removed seem to have a hernia, this causes a bulge (seem to think you may have a hernia) my son tells me I am more conscious of this than others. What to wear especially in the heat, yes from the Farmacia you can buy belts which I have tried, hot, ungainly hard to put on, would be good to find something more suitable.
I am not sure if you have the same problem but I never know when my bag will leak which can be embarrassing, I change usually every 2 days, but has leaked after one and if staying in can go without leaks for 3 days.
After showering when putting a new bag on I lie on the bed with my hand on the bag so the tape can adhere I hope.
Hope this is of interest to you.

Hello, you talk about, putting your hand over your bag. I wet a wash cloth, put it in a zip plastic bag, then hear it in the microwave for 10-12 seconds, the hold it on my bag til it gets cold. This works for me. My stoma nurse, for me doing this.

HI Janice. That sounds like a good idea will try, when first having my stoma I used to lie on the bed for 15 minutes but found 5 was enough, not sure about you but find easier to apply my bag lying down. Thank you for replying, 2 scans tomorrow and one Wednesday. Just hope good news. Love

HI That could be the problem, next time I change my bag I will do it standing. The skin becomes sore by my trying to scrape off the sticky residue left by the tape, but only if my bag has leaked. Thank you for advice.
