I recently had surgery to remove 18 inches of small bowel and had to start using a different kind of ostomy appliance. I have 8 unopened boxes of Assura 1 piece pouches model number 2115 ( these are pediatric pouches I used for my fistula) and 5 unopened boxes of Convatec Activelife one piece pouches, model #22771. Please call Tony at 317-412-7781. I'm happy to donate these to someone in need.

Tony~have you tried exchanging them with your supplier? As long as they haven't expired they should exchange them for you...if someone on here doesn't use those models!

There are also other organizations that take donations...I can bring mine to my WOCN Department and they have a volunteer that gets them to a few of the national/international organizations.

I hope you are feeling well!

Tony, that's so nice of you to offer! If nobody here claims them, you could donate them to www.ostogroup.org, which is an organization that gives free supplies to people without insurance.
