Tara and Dan,
What products do you use to eliminate the leaks? Just the eakin seals? do you use a convex seal or a regular one? What appliances do you use?
My stoma sticks out at least a 1/2 inch, and I've studied it and never seen it go beneath the surface of my skin, but I am still having leaks, every 1-2 days. :(
