I been eating a soft bland diet. I try to get balanced meals in as I have lost 3 pounds since I got out. Down to 115. My norm before getting sick this year was a very healthy and muscular 130. I use to lifeguard. Now I am very skinny and unhealthy looking. Were you saying you are having trouble gaining weight?
As far as supplies, so far there is nothing really that I don't like. I've tried Hollister one piece, Convatec two piece in clear and tan. I have my first order on the way and am excited to see and try the new stuff I ordered. I go through Edgepark which seems to carry everything. even Coloplast.
Looking forward to Saturday now, I'm going to try a naked shower :)
