I've seen alot of people talking about sure seals on here but I've never used them and not sure where to buy them from was wondering as I shower each day and have been soaking in the bath twice a day for my bum wound and I find my wear time isn't great because of it.

sure seals will make perfect solution for you! i'm not sure where exactly everyone in the U.S is ordering, but here's a link:

there are only 2 sizes. you need the large square one. good luck!

I'm actually in Canada not sure if that makes a difference. I know some places will ship here and some won't. I'm lucky my insurance through work is supposed to cover my supplies 100%. I haven't bought anything except wipes so far, still trying out samples because I'm having leakage issues and just not sure what I like yet.

good luck! over here in israel we either take advantage if someone goes to the U.S and make the shipment to where they stay. or we order through a company that makes shipment from U.S to Israel. but i have a sis in San Diago, so if i want, i can order and send to her adress. she comes every summer so can bring it to me. but i don't order, cuz i don't really need it. i take long showers every day and the wafer holds at least 10 days even w/o sure seals, so why should i need them? but if i had to sit in a bath tub or if i was a swimmer, then i'd need them. last time i changed i broke a reccord! kept the wafer for whole 15 days!!! i can be so lazy sometimes :/ the stools was just starting to get on my skin, but thankfully the changing was just on time! phew!

their website is www.alpglobal.com and they will send two samples with directions...just go online and request them. They'll ask you your brand/model number and will send the correct size for it.

It's trial and error so be patient when trying them for the first few times.

They are waterproof and breathable...I love them smilewinkgrin

Does anyone have issues getting sure seals off? I had a devil of a time. Plus for some reason, when I swam, the water got under the sureseal and onto the paper part of the wafer.

rosemary, when the water gets under, it means that the seal wasnt on all the way somewhere. that happens to me sometimes too. as for getting them off, since i tape the top of my bag, when i pull the tape off it pulls the seal off too.

Rosemary, i agree, the sure seals adhesive is REALLY strong. you just have to use a bit more of hollister's adhesive remover spray. hollister's adhesive remover spray is the best adhesive remover i tried so far.
