I order my tabs from edgepark they are called gel-x. I dont use them all the time, but they are very good when my output is watery or when i am going out.
As for your leaking and such, i think you are using way toomuch stuff! Less is more in these cases. Also, you probably do need to check the size everytime at this early of the stage. It changes ALOT in the first 2-3 months. And can keep changing after that.
This is what i do when i change.
I take a shower, then take my stuff off, dry the area very well.
I put paste on the wafer, around the hole. i dont use powder or spray or anything, i found that when i used those i got less wear time.
I lay down on the floor, that way my fat falls to the side, lol. and i put the wafer on and press down. then i snap the pouch on.
Then after i stand up i fix the pouch the way i want it. I find that i cant get the bag on the way i want it laying down. After i get it like i want it, i use the hair dryer on the wafer for a few seconds, press it down and again and then go!
I also use a sure seal, but you may not want to do that yet.
UC for 8 years, before finally kicking its butt and having a permanent ileostomy April 17 2007!
-I have gone to find myself, if i get back before i return, keep me here-
