Bladder Cancer: How is a urostomy connected?

Best wishes to you in your new life with an ostomy. I've had an ileal conduit since I was barely age five--so 58 years! I backpacked all over Europe for 3 months in college with my few supplies in my backpack. 🙂

One suggestion I'd have for you for appliances is to use appliance adhesive spray. It makes the appliance stick SO much better! And a tip about the spray: put some on the wafer and some on your skin, let it sit for about 30 seconds, THEN put on your appliance. The "double stick" factor--tacky skin to tacky wafer--usually makes a really good bond. 🙂

Thanks for the information on adhesive spray.
Take care.

@jmcmurdo, wow, 58 years with an ileal conduit. You have so much experience and knowledge to offer. May I ask what led to your needing an ostomy as a young child?
