I only just saw this thread, but posted one yesterday outling the problems I've had with Peristeen. I'm so glad it works for some people, but please be aware that it can cause problems. Here's a link to that thread: inspiredsciforum.com/thread/3173/perils-peristeen
We have just started using Peristeen from Coloplast here in the US,
All of the people have been very helpful, easy to talk with, and very professional at their jobs. Hope this helps! Here is some contact info:

Well, I called Coloplast a couple days ago and was on hold so long I just gave up and hung up. You know how impatient we USers can be. I have an appointment with a surgeon in 4 days to discuss a colostomy. Peristeen might be an alternative for me. Hence, the impatience.
