Hi. I am new to this network. I just signed up tonight for me and my Mom who has rectal cancer. She has a permanent colostomy. She is currently living with me. I change the wafer for her and she has been handling the daily bag change quite well for herself. She is 79 years old. I am having trouble getting the wafer to stick properly. I am finding that after about 2 days, it will start leaking out. I have tried the paste and also the ring that you can form under the wafer. I just don't think I am doing something right. Does anyone have any tips or advice for getting the wafer to stick better? Thank you for your help.
