Erin, I do have a closet full of supplies!! The insurance company I had before approved to send me 30 wafers and 30 pouches each month, and I don't use that many. I would save the extras and not order each month.
I've been really happy with the Coloplast wafers, too, and have spent the day swimming at a waterpark, and it still stays on for a week!
Do the stoma caps you have snap onto the wafer? I ordered caps once, and they sent me ones that peel and stick on. I would prefer ones that snap on, if they exist. I've been using the mini pouches instead.
Here are a couple of tips I've learned on here:
* Using an adhesive remover wipe when you remove the wafer makes it slide right off
* Shaving the little blonde hairs on your belly keeps you from pulling them out one by one
* Putting a capful of hydrogen peroxide into the pouch takes away the odor. Mouthwash works, too!
It must've felt really good to stop by school today, since you haven't been there for a while. You are doing so well after surgery. I'm really happy for you!
