Last night I noticed stool color between the plastic bag snap ring and the outer paper tape. It seemed OK so I did not change it. Bad mistake! about 4 hours later while sleeping it leaked out both sides. So, at 1:00 AM I had to shower and change it. However, the seal part of the wafer was really stuck and painful to remove. It seems as though the wafer may have separated between the brown seal part and the plastic bag retainer.
Anyone have any insight?

Sounds like a defect on their end...nothing you can do. Sometimes that happens. Not often. But sometimes.
