A lot of folks really like the moldable wafers since there is no cutting involved. I guess I'm still old school (or just plain Cheap!), but I have stuck with my Convatec Surfit 2 pc since my surgery A Long Time Ago. I just added the Eakin Seals instead of the Stomahesive Paste. Wear time is at about
7 days. Eakins have eliminated my leaks.... knock on wood!!!
Like Shaz said, if it itches, change it! Now if I have a trip away from home planned for a week, or long weekend, I try to "time" my change so that I won't have to do it while I'm away. Otherwise, I've been changing on Sat or Sun mornings.
I also like to get everything ready to go for the change before starting it. Sometimes, I do that before I go to bed the night before so that I can "take care of business" right out of bed in the morning before my buddy becomes active (and before I drink or eat anything).
I love hearing how well all of you are adjusting and trying new products. I love to hear your critiques of the products too. Keep up the good work and do keep your positive attitudes.
