Questioning Convatec Adhesive Remover Wipes: Unrealistic Advertising and High Prices

Reply to w30bob

In my experience, my stoma is never the same at each barrier change. Size can differ, so I only cut the opening just before use and hope I didn't get it too large, so I don't get an acid burn.


Hi Bob,

I just had my stoma revised, and so far it's staying exactly the same size.......knock on wood. The mess of a stoma I had before was a different story, but now that I have a proper 'rosebud' it's behaving well. Speaking of previous stoma was flush to my skin, for the most part, and no rosebud........just a real mess of skin. So I never actually saw my intestine sticking out, just the very tip of the opening. The other morning I was changing my barrier on my new stoma.......and it started moving! I was like WTF??? Then I realized I was seeing my own peristalsis for the first time. Very interesting.

She is awesome. I follow her on TikTok (basically all I look at on there is ostomy-related posts) and YouTube as well.


I would never! I've hidden it my entire life (I'm in my 30s and had my colostomy at 1 day old because of a birth defect). I'm posting like crazy today because I tend to forget about this group- sorry for old post replies.
