That is so nice of you to offer.  I wanted to do the same after my proctocolectomy b/c I had loads of Asacol left over and there are so many people who have pay a lot of money for it. 

I am pretty set in using Hollister one pieces, Eakin seals and M9.  yeah

But wait...I have an ileo...how different is that from an 'ostomy'?  I haven't really done much research on that.

My friend gave me some supplies that don't really fit me and my insurance covers everything- thank God! I have a bunch of two piece Hollister cut to size wafers (I think they are 2 3/4) and see through bags to match. There are quite a few of them... not sure how many. Also, a warning, they smell a little like smoke. I was going to wash them before I put them on but then I saw they were bigger than what I'm using now. I know, its a vanity thing but hey, if my insurance will get me my smaller size, I'm going for it! :)

Let me know.

P.S. They are for Ileos.
