I am a 72 year old with an ileostomy and used the Hollister lube deodorant until Medicare in the US changed the maximum monthly allotment. I used to get 3 boxes of 50 packets each month but Medicare changed the allotment to 1.8 boxes per month and my supplier won't split boxes. Now I order a 60 day supply which consists of 3 boxes and 0ne tube and it lasts just about 38 days rather than 60. Great decision by Medicare..

Hi Jim. That's really unfortunate. Are you considering switching products because of these (one that gets you the full 60 days or will you stay with the Hollister deodorant?

I am 67 and also had an illeostomy. What I do is mix at times Johnson' baby oil gel with Adapt to change the flow from the bottle, to what suits you.( thick or thin )

Another procedure which I use is mixing Johnson' baby gel with there baby oil. The Adapt or something similar works well. Prior to use you generally need to shake.

Being retired and in using Hollister wafer I will also slightly open the wafer vary slightly and use a chemical wash bottle to rinse from the top and reapply the solution from the top. It's a little tricky until you develop the method.

The oils all come in different smells. I have been doing this method for 2 years.

Great tips, Michael!

I was told not to use any kind of oil (baby oil, mineral oil, olive oil, etc.) as it may reduce the wear time of our wafer.

What is your general wear time? I think if you are getting over 3 or 4 days then it's a very good tip!

Regards,

Eric

You can get your doctor to write you an exception. I have been using Hollisters m9 for years (researching now to see if there's something better) Medicare only covers 1 8oz bottle a month but my doctors note lets me get 3 a month instead (due to frequency of emptying) all covered by insurance. You just need the doc's note filed with your supplier once.

Yes, this really depends on the insurance you have. My private insurance (here in Canada) covers these no problem - no limits really.

But that's a good tip about asking your doctor for a note in case you have limits.

Just trying this product now. Worried that it will get between my ring and wafer and loosen the bond and then my bag will leak. Any experience with this?

Hi Tiffany,

Ideally, you'll only want to use enough to coat the inside of your appliance (by rubbing it around when it's in there) without having too much pool up. I have never had trouble with lubricating deodorant compromising the flange.
