Changing a Colostomy Appliance

This is how she does her daughter.  This is what her stoma looks like after bag is first removed.

I clean it, and rip and roll a barrier ring.

Wafer on.

That is her laying down. Her stoma is kinda mushroom shaped. I’m wondering if you can get that ring wrapped around it might push it up a bit. I wrap it pretty tightly around her stoma.

You can always call the companies too and talk to a stoma nurse. We have always used Hollister products, but a Coloplast stoma nurse actually told me the toilet paper trick and I will love her forever because of it

Thank you. I will try this during my next change.
