I did not have a weeping wound. The stoma is soft and well supplied by blood vessels so will easily bleed a bit if scratched.
As mentioned, its very important to get the size of the hole cut as accurately as possible to fit round the stoma without catching it.
For me, I developed sore patches very quickly which my v experienced Stoma nurse recognised immediately as a common skin reaction to the adhesive used for the stoma bag.
She had a tube of barrier cream which she immediately gave me to use
~ right from the 1st meeting I had with her, she was absolutely insistent that I and I alone, learnt how to change my bags, clean myself up, etc. Totally no nonsense approach which scared me into being an excellent student!!
It worked very well but it did mean I had to learn to spend more time and care when I changed my bag (every other day usually). I had to make sure the cream was well and truly rubbed into my skin before I attempted to stick on the new bag.
Of course, that meant I had to position my stoma over the loo should it become active as it often did!
What I found to be really critical was lying back so that my belly was as flat as possible immediately after a new bag has been stuck on, rubbing the flange with warmth from the palms of my hands. This seems to make the flange really stick on properly and be a lot less susceptible to creasing which starts a weak spot and the cause of the few leaks I'd suffered.
Which reminds me that if one slouches or remain bent forward, that does tend to crease the bag's flange introducing weak-lines, the common cause of leaks.
Before I sussed this, I was naturally v upset when I had a leak. The suppliers of my stoma products suggested trying some semi-circular sticky flanges ~ I think they were called 'hydro frames' or something like that.
These were extra sticky pieces which you use to stick around the flange of your bag which made very sure there were no leaks! They even come with different degrees of stickiness!
Later on, I used them when I went swimming and they took all of that with absolutely no problems, no part of the flanges coming undone in any way what so ever. Even those with the lowest amount of 'tack'.
I continued to use my one-piece bag for 90+% of the time without any extra flanges, for the whole year I had a stoma.
Hope some of that has helped? Your Stoma nurse is a specialist and will be a great help ~ work closely with him/her.
Do write back with any concerns, queries ~ anything, even if you might think its a bit sensitive ~ loads of us have already suffered all the embarrassments going so really won't blink an eye!!
<EDIT: p/s my bags can be emptied from the bottom which is secured simply by folds and velco strips. You shouldn't really have them more than 1/3 full if you can help it as I recall that if they are full that puts extra strain on when you bend, which we all do. I did all the emptying and changing myself ~ not sure if it is practical for someone else to try to do it for you. >
