Stoma collars

I might be the last one to figure this out but I recently started using a stoma collar with convex flange and this really works for me. My stoma seems a bit short and it kind of goes in and out a little, so I was only getting 1-3 days out of an appliance change. Now I get a full 4 days, which may not seem like a lot but it’s been a huge improvement. With the collar I dont need to use the barrier ring. Anyway I thought I’d share that tip that works for me.

never heard of these. Thanks for sharing. I have a belt from stealthbelt.ca wonderful item. With my prolapse don’t think these collars would work for me.

thanks
