For those of you who are new and are wondering if you can go swimming this summer, the answer is YES!!
We got a pool about
a week ago, and I've been swimming every day (sometimes twice a day) and showering afterward, and my wafer has stayed on for 7 days! I wear the Coloplast Assura Extended Wear Wafer #2833 and love how waterproof it is. So, stay cool this summer, and enjoy swimming in the pool, lake, beach, or waterpark!
