Anybody tried the cheap ostomy products from China?

Hi gang,

Just wondering. If you've looked on AliExpress, you can find a whole plethora of ostomy products made (cheaply) in China. Just wondering if anyone has been brave enough to check them out. I'm thinking about trying the one in this link, since I can get it through Walmart! Shame on you, Walmart! But there's tons of other ostomy products if you go to AliExpress and hunt around. If you've tried any of this stuff, I'd love to hear your feedback.

First, the pieces that I ordered online were made in China. I got 30 of them for a very low price. I tried two of them, and each one lasted less than an hour. I sent them back the next day to Amazon. I've been with Hollister ever since. Buy cheap, get cheap, as the expression goes!

Only for a few of these for training etc, I wouldn't go near any stoma gear.

Bob, I showed you once how to make that. I called it the Shower Cap, look it up

. Just put a bag on it instead of a cap.
