Mine also leaked the entire time I had it.....20 some days???.....so long ago I can not remember. I did go back to the Dr. and they did not seem too concerned. The only time I did get it to seal is when I had one of my bladder scans. The radiologist was able to tug and move it around to get it to seal. But as soon as I got up and moved around a bit it started back. I became quite skilled at using my wifes pads and tape to seal thing up where urine would not leak down the tube. My problem now is still Leaking!!!! I will continue to fight this agravating complication to my treatment.
good luck in your treatment.
