leakage problems

1 year 6 months ago - 1 year 6 months ago #56132 by cancersucksbigtime
Hi Everyone,
It has been quite some time since I have been on this site. So, hello again1
My issue has been leakage. The urostomy pouches I have been trying all seem to have their unique problems. The latest has been leakage overnight :( In the last 6 weeks, I have wakened to a soaking wet bed, and before these times, I have wound up with wet clothes.
I have changed suppliers from Hollinger, who did nothing to help, to Coloplast, who have been wonderfully supportive. But I'm still having issues.
My ostomy nurse at Fox Chase Cancer Center, who is excellent, has suggested convex pouches, Eakins rings, and barrier strips, all of which I use. I do have a "dimple" on the left side of my abdomen. Probably old age setting in!!
Needless to say, this issue is extremely upsetting and it is driving me to tears, which in turn upsets my poor husband.
Any suggestions will be most gratefully accepted from this great group.
Thank you all in advance,
