Hey Shawne,

I haven't, but only because the available products I can get from Marlen are "deep convex", which is not going to work with my stoma. 

Tape allergies are tough. Has your stoma nurse been able to do a "patch test" on you? It might be a safer and more efficient way to go about seeing what will work.

Seen her she just said try different products until I found one that works.   When I get a sample i wear for a few days on opposite side of abdomen before using around the stoma.  I do not need a deep convex and had no problem having them send a different product called them in Vancouver have not got it yet so may not get what I asked for lol

Yeah, I'm sure I can get the regular wafers from another supplier, but I only really checked with my main supplier here in Ontario.

Let us know how it goes!

And that's a great idea to put the appliance on the opposite side of your abdomen - I often do that with new products, just in case!

Well, holy smokes! I had no idea they had a Canadian presence/office. 

I'm going to get in touch with them to see if they can send me some stuff :)
