To the person that suggested Hypafix - I opened the box and it wasn't what I was expecting. I was expecting some kind of plasticy tape and what I found is a material that's like wafer tape. I put a three-inch piece on the top of the wafer to see how well it does. The 5 cm width is perfect - half on your skin and half on the wafer tape. I imagine that this stuff could be used for other things that need to be covered, perhaps with non-stick gauze. I will try this on three sides on my next bag change.
The stoma nurse from home health was here yesterday. She is a minimalist and gave me some great tips for my bag, improving fit and staying on for activity. There are some tabs that insurance covers to help adhesive stay but she recommended this tape which isn't paid for but she finds is great. Its called Hy-Tape pink tape. I swim, kayak and love my hot tub, she said it will extend bag time, prevent bag from losing seal.

My naseua has increased some with treatment. I eat very lightly before and after. Yesterday an apple scone before and snack pack applesauce after. Milk seems to make everything worse.
I go for hydration 4 x after chemo. Dr just ordered IV antinaseua in the IV. I think worth a shot...I have gone from 150 to 119 pounds. I just did #9 of 12 so not much longer to go, but I think I need help with this final boost.
