I just put on a new appliance and I must have cut it a bit small.....I notice that the tip of the stoma doesnt poke through. Should I wait and see what happens or should I just go ahead and change it now?

Be sure to measure the stoma Each time... it can change in size. If the wafer is not sitting flush on the skine around the stoma and the whole stoma is thru the hole, chances are you will have a leak very soon. Also, you may have a little bit of bleeding from the stoma if it rubbing too hard on the wafer or the hole in the wafer. Just my 2 cents worth. Good luck to you.. let us know if you have other questions.

Does it feel better now? Did it look like it was ready to leak?
