Sounds like you have a minor leak. Make sure you aren't getting paste under the wafer. Paste is not meant to be an adhesive, it is more like caulk to fill cracks. You might need to add an Eakin ring or something like that to help contain your leak. Your ostomy nurse should be able to help you with that.
The instructions that I received had me using the paste. I meet with the Ostomy nurse on Thursday and I have a list of questions for her. I will probably call her today to ask about the paste issue. I suspect that I may have returned to work from Short-Term Disability too soon. I'm basically doing all of my work and household responsibilities while researching some of the cancer stuff. The stoma stuff that I did worked for a couple of weeks but I need to address the irritation.
I still think that the process for stoma supplies is pretty poor. I find that product discovery and sourcing to be challenging. Maybe it's a lot easier once you get the first one down. But the stoma stuff has bubbled up to my second priority (first is meeting with the oncologist to get adjuvant chemo started).
