Just a quick note to say hi! I recently had an ileostomy and my pouches leak all the time as well. Sometimes the flange leaks and I find using the round rings help prevent any leakage and adheres very well. When I find a solution I will let you know. Im tired of ET nurses and vendors saying that the pouches should not leak but that is because they are the ones that don't have an ileostomy to deal with. I wear little 'cozies' surrounding the pouch and place a cloth or paper towel to help catch the moisture. I am destined to find a solution. Cheryl
