I have recently gained 25 pounds and ostomy appliance management is my main concern right now. Getting my appliance to fit comfortably like it used to before I gained this weight is my objective. Changing my appliance frequently is very damaging to my skin and I struggle with rashes, burning and general discomfort. Therefore, I would like to get advice from people who have had similar issues.
Thank you.
