New Ostomy Appliance..

Posted by jghandymann, on Fri Sep 20, 2019 3:30 pm

I don't know how many people out there are experiancing a problem with a large hernia around their stoma.. I have for years now and Coloplast has come out with a new barrier that fits like a glove..

I just started using them at the beginning of September and I now have something that's comfortable and form fitting.. I don't worry as much about leakage as before.. I'm using the 2 peice click but i still use Tegaderm Film cut in half aroung the barrier.. It's 3M Tegaderm Film ref# 1626, 4 in x 4 3/4.. Check it out.. It already has helped with the leakage worry.. I also quit using anything with alcohol in it because it was causing me to bleed.. I basically remove the bag and appliance, jump in the shower, wash well with soap and water.. I also have found that using the prep spray for a remover works better than remover itself.. You're not left with an oily residue that keeps the barrier from sticking.. I've now had 14 surgeries on my stomach with the last one being two years ago.. All I can tell anyone who's reading this, look for the bright side of life! I'm probably one of the worst cases ever when it comes to complications but I'm a happy camper because i'm still here.. Good Luck John...

Hi JG,

  Thanks for the link.  I'm really bad about keeping up with the latest barrier/bag technology and innovations, so I found that interesting.  Maybe I'll actually start investigating what's new in these areas since the last time I looked, which was about 4 years ago.  Thanks for the nudge!

regards,

bob

Hello jghandymann. 

Thank you for bringing this product to our attention and supplying the link. The creasing around the edges of wafers has always been a problem for me, which is why I have made my own baseplates to overcome these problems. Because I irrigate, I rarely use bags anymore, but I will be contacting Coloplast to see if they will change the baseplates on the stomaa plugs to encompass this new technology.

As an aside: I was very impressed with their video on the reasoning and motivation for developing this new design. It's well worth watching!

Best wishes

Bill

I have already tried it  and sad to say it didn't work for me,   It was I feel to heavy  and the bag I use transparent  one piece  and I didn't like the way it emptied,   felt the bag itself was flimsy.  so I am now back to Holllister and one without tape   and use an Adapt ring,  and have no problems.  I also have a  fairley large  parastoma hernia.  For some it may be ok,   My ET nurse ordered samples for me      I am willing to try anything new.

Tried some samples and recently ordered.  I have been using for 2 weeks now and agree this is better.  The shape fits perfectly over my hernia/fat roll.
