I'm gonna post this just because you are now using the eakin seals and I am shocked that isn't working for you. You are using these in place of the paste, correct? Also,instead of using the whole seal, you might try just cutting the seals into 1/8 - 1/4" strips and applying that to the wafer around where you cut the stoma hole opening inthe wafer, Like you would the paste. Press it firmly to that area making sure that it is firmly secure right around the hole cut in the wafer. DOes that make any sense? I don't use the whole eakin seal - only the strips.
Where do you think the wafer is beginning to leak? Top, bottom, sides? Are you sure that you are warming the wafer a bit either with holding your hand over it or a warm setting on the hair dryer to be sure you have a good seal? I don't use the hair dryer any longer but tried it at one time but I do really rub my hand/fingers around the wafer to warm it up after I apply it. doesn't take too long either.
I will check in first thing in the morning....
