I just have to say that I am happy that the Eakin Seals are working pretty well for everyone. I have been getting 7 days wear time again!! I know that is very unusual for an ileostomate but I was getting 5-7 before I started having my issues. Then I was down to maybe 3 or 4 max. Now I am back up to 7 thanks to the Eakins (thanks again Judy for suggesting them!!!). I sure am grateful. Even us "veteran" ostomates have issues to conquer. It took several attempts at different ways to apply, etc., but I believe that I have finally found what works for me. Trial and error!
Best of luck to you Clyde -- if you are not having any "itchies", maybe try one more day if you didn't see any breakdown at day #4 the last time. (but maybe only if you are gonna be around home that day!) Never know til ya try, right?
