Like the smurf!!!
I LOVE my hollister...but it really depends on YOUR stoma. For me, the filter on the Hollister WORKS, and you don't have to use a sticker on it! It will fill up with some air at night, but after your first empty it goes back to working...something to do with the weight at the bottom helps the filter...I also got hooked on the "lock and roll" velcro bottom...what freedom
That being said...everyone IS different. You might like a feature on something else...and I would have loved to use the Sensura, but my uneven stomach prevents it After you get home, and you know your size and whether or not you need convexity, order some through the websites...all the companies will send them out to you!
You are lucky that your hospital uses a decent one! I didn't like the ones at mine but I put up with them until I got home
I really just wanted to know what experiences you had with certain bags and if there were any major no-no's...b/c I would love to avoid those.
I also like the idea of a 2-piece appliance...that's what I'll have at the hospital. I just really wanted to know what bags are the best for odor, gas, etc. I also am very curious about the closure part...I like the velcro idea, but didn't know how others thought of it and whether it was a good thing or not. So, thank you for easing my mind.
Since I've had the black mark on my tummy where the stoma will be, and I just bought the cutest Burberry babydoll tank, I am starting to get used to the idea and notion that there will be a little protrusion. B/c this past year in particular has been extrodinarily difficulty I am going to spoil myself with cute clothes and shoes once I've lost weight and back to me again. My first purchase was my tank top...next? I don't know...I have super short hair, so I'm thinking a Burberry headband? I do love Burberry...obviously. My husband is aware of some of the price tags, but I have a feeling that I'll have to butter him up before some purchases!
