It seems like we know everything there is to know about our stomas, the appliance and all that needs to be done and when. Yet it wasn't that long ago that we didn't know the difference, or if there was one, between barriers, barrier rings, barrier film or spray, wafer, base plate, etc. I mention this because there may be questions asked by newer folks and we (or I) need to slow down before throwing out stuff that was a mystery a short time ago. One of the real hazards for folks like us is not asking enough questions.
I'm not new to this but I'm still learning and would like to know your thoughts on some basic concepts starting with when to change the appliance. What constitutes too often or not often enough? Are there benefits to less frequent changes?
