changing a colostomy bag
for 17 yrs my mother has always changed her own colostomy bag, but recently she has developed dementia, and is no longer able to do it. i need to know how to put it on properly so it wont leak. she uses a wafer, a bag, a tropical powder to keep down infection around the stoma, and a stomahesive powder.  i know how to do the skin prep, but i am not sure about how to properly use that stomahesive. so far, everytime i change it for her, it has started leaking the next day. once i apply the stomahesive, do i need to let it set for a few minutes to get sticky or apply the wafer immediately?
