OK I received my samples for the flex and Xpro flex two piece system yesterday. I was so excited to get to try them over a weekend. I would hate to try a new product during the work week in case something goes wrong.
First of all they only supplied me with 2 bag but 2 barriers of each type, Secondly I can't tell the difference between the barriers. They look exactly alike and there are no product numbers on them so I have no clue which one I have one. So far I find it to be very comfortable. I don't even notice I'm wearing anything. Also the barrier shape and flexibility fits my particular current situation as I have to cut part of the barrier off so not to cover my incision running from my belly button down. Normally I have to sue extra tape or the barrier strips to hold the cut portion down.
I noticed during the day some stool leaked out between the adhesive that keep the bag attached to the barrier. Funny thing is it leaked from the top and got the bag a little moist in the back.
This was disappointing! I was able to remove just the bag, clean it up and place another bag on. Hopefully this time the adhesive will hold. Now I ran out of bag and can't try another barrier!
Has anyone else had issue with stool leaking from the adhesive seal that keep the bag on?
I'm just hoping it was because I didn't do something correctly. I did line the bag up with the blue line. I do have the bag slightly turned to be at an angle as the bags are to long for me.
btw...the new line is coming out in early April now.
