I need a very flexible pouching system with front access to my stoma.

My stomach is level with my skin.  When I use the two piece wafer and bag, the wafer is too rigid and pulls away from my skin, even with a barrier ring and extra build up.  I need to be able to access my stomach after the wafer is attached.  Thank you.

I'm new to this as of March 25th. Looks like we're about in the same bind. Many trial bags used with flanges, etc. You can understand the drill. So far I'm using a Mio bag with convex wafer with the stoma putty ring along with paste. Finish off with tape around the flange. This bag has now lasted come tonight 7 full days. Longest bag yet vs up to 5 in one day. I've rigged mine so much since my incision is right next to it and open still. The bag has a filter and is still working. Prep skin real good with the preps and only use water to clean outside of the adhesive removers. Stoma powder crusting if needed. I also use those gel caps for solidifying my loose output since it's an ileostomy and flat as well. Use the paste on the bag before placing on the flange. Hope this helps. I've been through the mill as well and it just will get you down at times especially whenever a blowout happens on a fresh bag. Good luck and many blessings....Jennifer

There's a product by Hollister, which is a Medical Adhesive Spray, Product #7730. Each time u change your Ostomy Appliance, just spray the Adhesive Spray around the inside of your new Flange. It sticks on really well. Hope that helps.
