Hollister sent me some samples of their new AF300 filter bags. I've read that these are supposed to be great, but I've never used a filtered bag before and they didn't come with any instructions. I had a leak emergency yesterday with my old system and ended up using the new bags and the new wafers they sent with them and then was worried all day and barely slept last night for fear of the filter leaking or clogging or I don't know what. Then I was worried again in the shower this morning. Was I supposed to do something? I know I must sound incredibly ignorant, but are you supposed to do anything with the filters or just put the bag on as usual?
It's a 2-pc. system which is what I've used since I left the hospital but the flange is much smaller and the wafers were pre-cut. Everything fit okay but because it was a middle-of-the-day emergency change, it was difficult and I was flustered and I've been "freaking out" ever since (can ya tell?). And the leak happened about
a minute after I sat down to watch my son's baseball practice - the first practice I've seen in years thanks to UC, and I ended up rushing home to change and missed most of the practice.
Plus my skin was a mess underneath everything and it was red and bumpy and bleeding. All in all, not a good day yesterday. Sorry if I sound whiny. I just get so frustrated sometimes. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. -Laura
