So I'm on Tuesday I am having my pre-op meeting with a nurse, my ileostomy surgery is scheduled for Aug 1st. My question is about supplies. I'm sure the hospital will send me home with some stuff, but where do I buy it after that. Do pharmacys sell it or do I have to order it through the mail? Should I do that now so I have ednoguh supplies in time, or should I wait until after the surgery so I know exactly what to order?
