I tried to get it on good last night, but I did have a really hard time. I think the bag was funked. B/c this other bag was much easier and i do hear it click. I still pressed really hard all the way around to make sure (which I don't love b/c I still feel bruised up on my abdomen).
But now I'm paranoid.
I was having "show and tell" at work-I'm a vet tech and we are a small clinic and they all want to see the new poop show and I don't care (we're like a little family). They are genuinly facinated with how this actually can work. And we see poop all day, so they have tough tummy's.
So I was excited to show off my new little friend and glad I had on a two piece so I could show them the stoma. it even pooped for them. there were Oooooohhhs and Aaaaahhhhhs all around
The point: I have since been reaching down to make sure it's clicked all day.
Plus one for the two piece. now they're even again.
oh yeah, I called the coloplast people and told them what happened last night and they are now going to send me even more bags.
Maybe I live off samples
