I ordered it but haven't used it yet, Dan.
As for cutting the tape off, that's not a thing. Trust me, in my early naive days I tried that. The whole thing is made of tape. The non-tape ones are made of a completely different material that's made out of pectin so if you have sensitive skin it hopefully won't irritate.
It's so frustrating hearing all of you talk about this 7 days, no problems with tape, blah blah. I was so pleased to have my ostomy and not be sick and now I'm starting to get really angry that I'm still struggling. This is not fair.
