You got it! The closed-in pouches have about
60 per box so that lasts me 2 months. Then I use a regular size bag every night. I rinse a bottle through it in the morning and hang it to dry over the side of my tub.
This is what I do normally...Wake up and remove regular bag and put on mini closed-in bag.
Then when I return from my work out, I do one of two things. (1) I keep the mini closed-in pouch on all day (like today) because I am pretty much home-bound today or (2) if I have errands to run, I discard the closed-in pouch and replace it with a
open-end mini pouch. (Yes, that means I discard 2 small bags in one day). At night, I put my large bag back on. Sometimes if my mini
open-ended bag stays mostly clean I will rinse it out and reuse it the next day.
For the most part, I only discard one bag a day - the closed-in bag. I normally rinse the other bags out and reuse them and discard them when I feel they need it. Keep in mind that I DO NOT produce a lot of stools so my bags do not fill with much contents. I do not discard my
open-ended pouches when they only held a couple ounces of stool. That would be a waste.
As for my insurance, I can order any bag and any pouch without limits, YIPPIE! Adhesive removers, belts, certain barriers, and other mics items are not covered but those are minor expenses compared to bags and wafers. I can get removers on ebay.
I truly hope this helps.
