I put my eakin seal on first and wrap it like a scarf where most of my leaks had happened.....some do the other way, but i feel more somfortable and the i hold for 15 seconds. I go 3-4 days, i could probably go longer....but i am meticulous clean. I am having eating issues, i hate output....they are sending me to a psychologist since i lost 23 -24 lbs sine i last saw my surgeon. i wish you the best.
