My ostomy nurse explained that the hospital uses Holister products and showed me the wafer and bag that I would have while there...really it's not that bad...I was expecting something cheap and ucky.
Anyway, she told me that if there is a specific brand or style of bag that I would prefer she would be more than happy to order all that I needed so I would have it before leaving the hospital.
My questions to you are:
What brand do you feel is the most reliable?
I would really like a bag that is good for gas and odor...do you find that there is one that seems to work better than others?
Also...what type of closure do you prefer? I know that once I've gained experienced and developed and adjustment and sense of comfort with having the ostomy I'll probably know more about what would best fit my needs...but in the beginning I would really appreciate to know what you have found works well for you so I have an idea of what avenue I should take.
Thanks and have a great day!!!
