well i have chosen to go with the ones you cut after trying some samples. Convetec is very good to send sample upon request. I am going to a much smaller hole in my wafer as i am unclear why i was using such a huge one when i need so tiny a one.

Thanks for all on their input.

I don't use those. Since my stoma was made April 06, I know the size is 1 inch. So I order that size already pre cut. It is on top of the stoma with no skin showing. I don't use paste or anything except for those prep wipes. It does sound like a great idea but I wouldn't be able to use my big bags with convatec. When I get the jpouch done...I will have to get used to a much lower stoma and need the convex wafer.

I use the moldables sometimes. I have issues with the adhesive so I don't wear it all the time. There are two types of wafer thickness... stomahesive and durahesive. Which you use, depends on the type of output you have.

You don't cut the moldables! An instruction sheet should come with your samples, but all you do is roll or push the opening to the shape of your stoma and apply the wafer. The material will eventually try to return to it's original size and in doing so, will "snug" itself up around the stoma without putting alot of pressure on it.

They're really good when you travel and maybe find yourself in a situation where you cant take a lot of time... or see clearly... just pull the wafer hole open and the thing makes it's own fit!

Guess youall can tell by my posts i am having issues with my supplies. I am getting a sample sent to me and suggested by convetec of a moldable type waffer. Does any one use these and can tell me about them?

ALso how close to your stoma do you think your waffer cut-out should be? justbea

no one relied to my other question on here yet guess every one is busy? Thanks to anyone who can answer either .
