I just received an order of Eakin seals from our medical supply company (we are trying these as the Adapt barrier rings seemed to swell up to much and I am afraid they will block the stoma opening). I received 3 boxes of Eakin seals from Edgepark Medical and they are dated August 2010. They are over a year old. Can they expire and be less effective?
We are having much more of a problem with leaking with the loop ileo than he did with the end ileo.
