I use eakin seals each time I change my waffer.
When changing my waffer I also use a hair dryer on low to help the adhesion. I pick this tip off this site.
I have once in the past got 12 days. I only did this as a trial.
I feel your pain! You've heard on hear before the concept of 'picture framing' the wafer with clear or water proof tape. I and many others do that to get the wafer to stand up better during showers, regular wear, etc. I have to reapply the picture framing tape twice per day do keep the wafer outside tape in stable condition. I get3-4 days from a wafer but wouldn't ever get that long without picture framing. And some times I only get 1-2 days but that is rare. Used closed end bag and change 1-3 times each day.
This technique of yours withstands the summer perspiration well, aye? That is one of my concerns, weak points. I will reread your post and if I have Q I'll email you. I'd like to progress with that concern. Thanks.
|I've had my colostomy for almost 18months and started out with Convatec but changed because I was allergic to the moldable. I use a 2 piece Hollister system that lasts me about 5-7 days. Usually 7 days. I change the bag and the flange at the same time. The bag is a drainable bag and I use water to flush the bag each time I empty it. This gives me a feeling of security so it works for me. I can't say I've noticed any particular reason for having to change it earlier. It's usually because I didn't get it seated on comfortably and it was felt irritated but there was no problem with my skin. Best to err of the side of caution and change it before it needs to be.|
Same here Suz2
