Hang in there Bob. I am amazed, in awe, and have a high respect for all of you who have had to deal with IBD and surgery.
As for the adhesive spray, Bratcat tried the 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film Spray. She never liked it but then again, she hates anything on her skin. Many people on the forum love it! I looked on an old order form from Byram (who we used). The catalog number is 3M3346. Not sure if that only applies to Byram or all companies. We still have a bottle (1 oz). If you want it, it's yours.
We haven't gotten around to it, but we have quite of bit of supplies left over. I will post them on the forum for anyone that may need them and has to pay alot for them. We were lucky and all her supplies were 100% covered. So we were able to order alot and not have to worry about rationing (except when we forgot to place an order!).
By the way, be prepared for your MIL to say she can smell you even if no one else can. I think she will be predisposed to believing that and nothing you say will change her mind. Just try to ignore her comments. I am sure if there is an issue, Mrs. shrek-chewbacca-hunk will mention it to you in a gentle, loving way.
Hope you enjoy(ed) shopping!
