I have an ileostomy. My stoma is retracted at the bottom and my abdominal wall is uneven with areas on each side of the stoma that dip, while the skin above the stoma is elevated. I have been using a convex Convatec Natura Durahesive wafer along with a Nu-Hope belt, but recently have had leakage problems on both sides of the stoma where the abdominal wall is lower. I got a sample of a Coloplast Convex Mio wafer but it did not accommodate the Nu-Hope belt, and it leaked in less than 24 hours. I am wondering if other people with uneven abdominal walls and/or retraction of stoma have found wafers that solve this problem.
