hi everyone,

I have just heard of this moldable wafer. In contrast with traditional wafers, what is the cost difference? thanks
a link to a website that sells these would be much appreciated, thanks

I actually called Convatech and they're sending me samples to try. That's the only company that I'm aware of that makes them. Here's a link to their website and at the top where it says other Convatec websites, you can choose what country you are in. I'm excited to try it and see if it works better for me than my current products the hospital sent me home with. I like the fact that I can try them before I buy a box in case I don't like them.

Actually I didn't find out about the prices. I figured I'd try it first and see if I like it. Also I wasn't really concerned as my insurance will cover it. When you call them though just ask. I'm assuming they probably are a bit more, but if they help with the leakage then I guess it is probably worth it in the long run. They were really easy to deal with I found.

try samples first, a lot of people don't like them
