question as usual,
do u guys u clips or the invisaclose bottoms? My ostomy nurse ordered the clips for me, and now that i'm trying to wear regular clothes they are becoming uncomfortable, theyr poking me and i feel like i'll break them. Not to mention theres always a point sticking out in my pants or skirts unless theyr really loose.
Also, because the 10 inch bag didnt come in invisiclose or velcro (im talking convatec here). She got me a 10 inch bag w/the clip. Now that i'm going out more often i'm feeling as tho if i had a 12 inch with an invisiclose it would be easier to wear. I'm afraid i'll need to empty more often with a 10 inch.
Also, i use a 2 piece appliance, trying to find out how to keep the bulk down.
So i was wondering what were ur experiences...and did u guys have any tips on how to adjust? I'm worried that its too late to change to what i really want which is an invisiclose opaque bag (which i didnt know was white, i thought it was more of a "nude" color). As my nurse care worker from my insurance said that b/c ostomy supplies dont change that often in a short period of time, that the company shipping just usually sends an automatic order of what u got the last time every month. I really dont want what i have right now. And i'm getting ready to go back to work and want to feel as comfortable and secure as possible.
What do u guys think?
