I have had a urostomy for 2 years and 12/15/2016 I had my bladder removed and the scar isn't in the way but we can't ge the wafer to stick on that sidefor more than seems like not eve a half hr. It just peels of. Only thing that;s being done different is the the extension barrier adhesive can't be used because of the scar at this time otherwise we have tried different soaps to try and make sure it is clean enough after surgery and always used skin prep but even tried without and getting the same results. Only thing keeping it from actually leaking all over is the strip paste used around the inside. I'm afraid this is going to leak and get into and opening in the scar and cause a nasty infection.
I have a question about Ostomyland on fb, which was suggested I join by someone on this site. I surmise a lot of people here also belong to that fb group. My question is this: If I post anything will other fb friends who know nothing about my iliostomy see those posts? Same question goes for if I comment on another's post, will my unenlightened fb friends see them?
I have many "friends" who are nothing more than people I used to share coins with through games, whom I have never met, and are not personally involved in any way with my life. I think my question is one of not knowing how "closed" the group is.
