I had written earlier about needing to change my bag style due to upcoming left hand LRTI surgery. I contacted my ostomy nurse that I had at the hospital and he was very helpful! He helped me to calculate about how many of the closed bags I would need and the type number. We also figured in some extras in case of emergency. I reported what I needed to my VA provider and they will be ordering them shortly. All I can say is that if you ever need anything in regards to your ostomy, your ostomy nurse is the best place to go. Thank you also everyone from the site who offered advice. It was greatly appreciated.
