      Check all advice with your medical team! Plus, quoting medical sources (HON code requirement)   08/25/2015

      Here at Ostomyland we are a patient run community - meaning we have learnt what we know as a result of being the patient and 99% of our members have got no medical qualifications whatsoever, and so any support replies are usually based on personal experience or friends/family-members personal experience. As a result Ostomyland strongly recommend that all members should check the accuracy of any support/health advice they have been given here with a member of their own medical team (GP, ET/Stoma Nurse/ Surgeon etc) BEFORE acting on it. This is for your own safety, as all our bodies are very different, and what works for one might not for the other, and for another it might even be dangerous! Ostomyland is not responsible for the content of the posts made, each member is responsible for their own posts. So if you ever did get any duff advice (unlikely, but could happen one day....) then blame the person who posted the message, and not Ostomyland. We are proud to be HON code certified and work very hard to meet the requirements of their principles. As such, and as requested under principle 4 of the HON code guidelines we must ask that members of the forums please quote sources for any medical information they give which is not based on personal experience.   Thanks.

URGENT wafer problem

3 posts in this topic

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.

What about Nexcare Liquid Bandage? (Same as Cavillon Spray but available over the counter at pharmacy for much less.)
