Hey pro tip: if you decide to use a disposable razor or trimmer, hold an empty toilet paper roll tube over the stoma as you shave to protect from nicks.


Wow, lots of tips. The razors didn't work for me. I couldn't get close enough to the stoma. So, being me, I use my skinning knife.

Nice! A sharp shave with a baby smooth finish. Talk about sending the doctors nuts when they ask what I use. Well, do what you need to get a nice smooth shave.

G'day Beth, it's Iggy again.

I use a disposable razor and the hairs close to the stoma I pull out with tweezers. I hope you find what is right for you. Iggy
