Can anyone give me suggestions?
My mom's stoma prolapsed last weekend.
After a few days in the hospital whe was sent "home",
Her old bags are too small and cannot be cut big enough.
I had ordered a 3 month supply just before this happened - they were special cut for the stoma --- so can't be returned.
They are too small.
With her prolapsed stoma she went from 1 1/8 inch to now 1 3/4 inch..... and she in covex...

She has macular degeneration and can't change the bag herself, but can empty it.

Need help to find a bag that will hold on........

Have you called her ET nurse?
Or maybe Holister or coloplast?
The hole in the wafer cant be cut any farther out? the ones in my bag can be cut out to 2 inches. Of course all the types are different.

Im sorry im not more help!
