Good Information

"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."

Here is a site I ran across and it seems to be good for Sore Skin Around Your Stoma. The Ostoform Seal ensures that stoma output flows away from your skin, keeping it safe, healthy and comfortable. I have order samples will let you know how they work or you can order samples for your self. It looks good check it out or if any have tried these let me know how they work for you.                                                                                                                          https://ostoform.com/

It’s like a stoma Slip-N-Slide. 😁 if anyone has thick output and it works, let me know.

Well, I just received an email back from the company that said they have no distributors in Canada. 😕

Hang in there - I spoke with a rep who said the company is new.  My guess is, if it’s a great product it will be widely distributed.

That looks great!

I hope they do start to distribute in Canada at some point. I would love to try this.

Thanks Lovely!

Have you gotten and tried your samples yet? I have and they don't really work for me. If you have regular output they make help, but if you have pudding like out put they don't.  I hope they help you, let us know.

Just as an FYI per your request- Got my freebies the other day…only have tried it one time - a slip and slide not so much if output is oatmeal quality

Usually my output is liquid but while trying this it was not!, so the output seemed to stay on the ledge rather than slip sliding’ away.  I will give it another chance but having a little skin issue right now.  

Thanks to Lovely for the info - always willing to try new things - mostly always ⚠️

Mine have arrived but I’m at the cottage so I haven’t had a chance to try, although they are available here if I just ask

Got 4 samples…first one - not so good …output loved the “shelf” and remained there for a while…second one - dismal failure (my fault) trying to fit it properly was like trying to dress a one ton elephant into a size 2 tutu - whole deal was trashed - today a third try and I have felt my stoma (prolly screaming) all day.  I will give the 4th one a try in a few days but not looking hopeful.  Hate to get the phone call from the rep and give her some bad news…she was sooooo nice.  Think I will just stay with my simple 1 piece pouch and make sure it has a snug fit on ole’ Seymour - I believe that is key.  Sure appreciate that you shared this latest technology tho - always willing to try the latest thing in stoma wear.  THANKS, Lovey for the info.

I actually just tried these out this past week. Cornholio, my stoma, is tallish and lays to the side, so I was hoping it would help keep it more upright - and it did. But, I had, ummm, issues with it. The first night, about 10 hours in, the left "wing" popped out from under the flange. The next morning I went to empty my bag and the entire silicone piece was off and floating around in my bag.  I did a full appliance change and found that it caused a major leak under the barrier. I now have blisters and raw skin for the first time in months. That's what I get for messing with the system that worked. Now I'm dealing with severe itching... Ugh.

Ostoform part that was swimming in my slurm.

Cornholio with the ostoform ring.

I noticed that as well. It loaded up the slurm underneath the tab and gave more surface to collect. It was much harder to empty because of that.

I tried these a few weeks back, too, and didn't have much success. I didn't seem to get a good enough seal around my stoma, the ring wasn't thick enough and the plastic spout did little. I get so excited with these new ideas but they don't always live up to their potential😐
