Help needed

Hi all.

First time on here, looking for some help, I'm five months post surgery with an end ileostomy dur to crohns and intestinal tb. Things have been good after the initial settling in period, the problem I have is that because I'm so narrow there isn't a lot of space between my Stoma and belly button, so my flange goes over my belly button and as soon as I move around or bend I'm getting a void an the flange is coming in stuck the whole flange coming away from skin.

I can't use extra tape as I'm allergic, I've tried different bags, Welland, dasnsac and Hollister, the Hollister was the best, the flangecwad perfect and very sticky but the velcro pening kept coming undone!

I'm looking for a one piece soft convex drainable bag with a different shaped flange maybe diamond it butterfly that will be pass my belly button.

Any one have any suggestions.

Thanks for reading.
