I've had great luck with the last two pouches I've applied. So much so, I had serious anxiety about changing the pouch this time. Well, last night I sprung a very small manageable leak, so my decision has been made for me.
I'll be changing out the pouch this morning after a shower, going horizontal this time so I can try out the first ostomy belt that has arrived. I got it on eBay and have had it for about 10 days, but haven't tried it out yet.
Still rolling with my Coloplast samples, I prefer the one-piece Coloplast to those two-piece "dollar store" Convatec I was given in the hospital. The Convatec to me sounded like I was trying to hide a piece of cellophane under my shirt, so loud!
Thanks for reading/listening and please think good thoughts while I attempt this pouch change doing ALL the steps. Last time, I forgot to do skin prep and didn't realize until the pouch was on and sealed. Thankfully, it hasn't hurt or stung.
I appreciate all the help I get here, y'all are some tremendous people. I couldn't do this alone!
