My surgery to create a colostomy was two years this November 8. Until now I have been using a Coloplast convex transparent bag because I like to rinse it and make sure all 💩 is gone. I just recently went from a one inch to a 1 1/8. I've lost 13 of 15 lbs gained at beginning of pandemic. For some reason my stoma became a tad larger and my precut 25 was too tight. When I talked w Coloplast rep he said they don't make pre-cut 28's so I ordered one box opaque. A second reason I like the transparent is I can see that I've got the stoma w an Eakin ring attached to the pouch placed correctly.
Will I be able to do this with opaque pouch? I don't think I'll be able to get it as clean but I can live w that.
Today when I changed bag and was prepping for new one, paper towels, adhesive remover and barrier wipes were bloody--- not horrible, but more than usual.
Answers, suggestions welcome.
