Margaret...sorry the Ace didn't work so well. Maybe it has to do with the position of the tube..Bill's was fairly high on his stomach. Also, he had me to wrap it for him...daily ritual for me to clean around the hole and then stretch the ace around him after his shower. I think getting it stretched properly helped keep it from bunching but that is hard to do by yourself.
Anyway, we were so happy to find something that worked and didn't irritate like that awful tape did (we tried cloth and surgical tape...both were troublesome.)
