“I wear a convex drainable pouch and I have always worn a seal as part of my regular routine. When I was told there was a new, thinner seal to try I was definitely up for trying it out. The one I was using was doing the job fine – so I wondered how on earth can they better this?
Wow – it is so thin! My first impression of eakin freeseal® was that it looked tiny and is in fact only 1.8mm thin. My initial thought was that there was no way this would be able to do the same job as a thicker seal, but I was so wrong! It is just as absorbent, if not more so. The other fantastic thing with this seal being so thin is that it’s far more discreet and less noticeable under my clothing; giving me the freedom to wear whatever I want and feel confident.
I have to say the other great thing with the new eakin freeseal® is how easy it is to mould into shape. It’s flexible, stretches effortlessly and fits to size so easily whilst retaining its stickiness to protect my skin SO well!
Everyone’s stoma is a slightly different shape and it’s certainly not a one size fits all approach so having this flexibility is key and certainly makes you feel comfortable during a bag change.
I would encourage you to give it a try and find your freedom!“
