Hello all!

When I first got an ostomy, I googled all kinds of questions. In my searches, I noticed a lot of people stating that they'd be short on supplies and they're expensive. Not sure if this is actually the case and I can't find the forums I originally looked into, and found this community!

I've had my reversal and I have leftover supplies I'd like to donate to some people that may need them. I have the following:

7 boxes (5 count) Hollister 2 3/4" skin barriers (wafers)

8 boxes (10 count) Hollister 2 3/4" 2 piece drainable ostomy pouch

If you struggle with stretching your supplies for the month and you use the same or similar supplies, please reply! I'll split amongst those who need, but I'm looking to max 7 people so I can at least send a carton of each.

If you end up with leftovers, you can donate to 211.org; they do a similar thing on a full-time scale.

I'm Kriss from Ghana and my biggest problem is getting these stoma supplies. I will be happy if I get these stoma bags. My required stoma size is 65-70mm cut.

OMG, I'm in desperate need!!! I literally only have one bag and my insurance won't cover any...

Hello, I am interested in possibly obtaining some supplies. I don't have membership on here. Hopefully, we can talk about it.
