Hi all: Now that I am a not-so-proud owner of a colostomy bag, I need some advice. I have had more embarrassing leaks and explosions than most people I think (or maybe not!). For example, I had a CT scan on Wednesday and had to drink 2 bottles of barium stuff. When I got back to the place I'm staying, everything exploded! So embarrassed.
Anyways, I am using products made by Coloplast. I have a real leakage problem around the flange - probably because I have a fat little tummy! I use the 2 piece system. All terribly expensive (a box of 5 flanges is over $120 and a box of 20 bags is about $130 plus all the seals and deodorizers). Can anyone advise on the following:
(1) seals to prevent leaks
(2) perhaps better systems
(3) ordering products online (I am Canadian).
I will have it for life.
