I'm just going through this catalog of ostomy supplies they gave me at the hospital and trying to decide what to order, and I'm just a little overwhelmed! I don't know how to figure out what I'll want. I know I don't want a clear one like the one they gave me at the hospital...gross to be able to see my poop, and it's so crackly and loud!
What do you guys use/how did you find what was right for you? Right now I have a two-piece one, though I don't understand why that is more desirable than a one-piece.
Also, how many people have like one of those belt things to wear during physical activity? I'm thinking of getting a few, but don't want to spend millions on a crappy one.
Any suggestions would be great! Thanks, guys :)
