Question Ileotomy leakage

Had ileostomy surgery in July 2010. Have had ongoing leakage from stoma barrier ever since. Have tried 5 different manufacturers, no luck, finally achieved 3 wks. success/w Convatec Moldable Convex Barrier, but that is now leaking around outer ring. Use no soap or wipes, dry area/w hair dryer before & after application. How often do most people have leakage?

Re: Ileotomy leakage

I have them all the time and I find it can be soo embarassing! sometimes once a week or several times a day, have you tried the mouldable seal that you put on before the bag? I found they help a lot?

Re: Ileotomy leakage

If you use paste, try warming the tube up in some hot water, it helps things stick better.
