Ostomy surgery entails some risk, and one of those risks are parastomal hernias.
The Ostomy Amigo caught my attention many months before it was launched, not only because it was made by a company not far from where I live, but because the idea itself is pure genius!
Sometimes, an ostomy wrap isn’t the best solution for keeping your ostomy pouch secure and concealed, so I was excited when I came across the company Joeies. They offer a product line specifically designed for ostomates, and I requested their Eh Ok Mate as part of a future project.
Joeies was kind enough to send one, and here’s my full review.
Unlike some other countries, where ostomy supplies are provided for free or at a very low-cost, Canadians usually have to pay out-of-pocket. This can lead to financial stress and anxiety, but there are several strategies that I’ve found to help keep costs to a minimum.
Many ostomates feel more self-conscious about their body than the average person. Sometimes we use special clothing, wraps or products like the Stealth Belt to boost our comfort and confidence, but many of us feel most comfortable when we keep things simple. An ostomy pouch cover can help, and today I’ll be reviewing two from Grandma’s Hands.
