I have decided that over the next few months I will talk about a different ostomy supply company and their main product. Sometimes we find that we are sent home with one brand after surgery and it may not be the perfect fit for you. It is completely normal to try other products and sometimes […]
So most women who read this and possibly some men would associate the words “mini, midi and maxi” to be with the length of a skirt! Whilst you wouldn’t be wrong the words can also be associated with the size of ostomy appliances.

Are you still using the type of appliance that was given to you when you first received your ostomy or are you having issues with the one you are currently using? Did you know that you don’t have to settle for a pouch you aren’t happy with? We are all individuals and our bodies are […]
