Hello, ostomy friends!
Because I've been having leaks under my wafer for the past week and a half (UGH), I'm guessing I may need some convexivity or something similar. I contacted Convatec and had them send me some samples (I currently use 2-piece hollister with adapt paste), and I just got them in the mail today. I'm going to try them tomorrow, but here are some questions:
1. Do Eakin seals always come without a hole? Mine are just circles. Do you cut the hole yourself? And then just put it in place of where I would put the paste? And then put the wafer over top?
2. Can I use the Eakin seal with Hollister or Convatec? I kind of want to forego the new Convatec wafer and pouch for now (it's CLEAR, ugh...hopefully that's just cuz it's a sample) and use my usual Hollister.
3. The pouches I use with Hollister are mini-pouches, 9 inches before you roll up the bottom. It seems like no other company makes small pouches. I can't stand these long ones from Convatec. Is there any way I can like roll it up or something?
Thanks for all your input as usual. I don't know what I'd do without you guys!
