Ostomysecrets Classic Wrap – REVIEW

ostomysecrets classic wrap full frontal

Ostomysecrets logoOstomysecrets is a big name when it comes to clothing made for ostomates.  Undergarments, swimwear and wraps are their specialty, and they have some of the most well-made products around.  I had the pleasure of receiving their Unisex Classic Wrap as a complimentary gift following their webinar titled “Putting the Pieces Together After Ostomy Surgery” back in early April.  I’ve heard such great things about their products, but since shipping is limited to the United States and a few European countries, I never had the opportunity to buy any of their products before.

Coloplast Sensura Mio 1pc #10471 – REVIEW (w/ video)

Coloplast Sensura Mio package contents

Finding the right ostomy appliance is just as important as finding the right pair of shoes to wear. The quality of life for an ostomate often depends on their pouching system and Coloplast hopes to improve on this with their new Sensura Mio product line.

I’ve been using the new Sensura Mio #10471 for about a month. Coloplast was gracious enough to enroll me in their product feedback program in order to get samples before the official launch on May 1st, 2014.

Grandma’s Hands ostomy pouch cover – REVIEW

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.

ConvaTec Diamonds all-in-one ostomy pouch sachet – REVIEW

Convatec-Diamonds-logo

Liquid output, “ballooning” and odor – three problems that many ostomates are faced with on a daily basis.  While some of these challenges can be remedied by changing what you eat or how often, for some, these issues simply never go away.  Using multiple products to combat these problems separately may not be desirable, so when a product claims to be able to tackle them all, it certainly warrants some review.

Today I’ll be looking at the ConvaTec Diamonds sachets, which I purchased from a local ostomy supplier.

Ostomy Vent filter (for Osto EZ-Vent) – REVIEW

The other week, I reviewed the Osto EZ-Vent product and had given it a very favorable review.  One of the only concerns with the EZ-Vent is that the gas which escapes it is at full-strength, since there is no filter to neutralize the odors.   One innovative company aims to find a solution to that problem by offering a small filter to add to the Osto EZ-Vent.

I’ve tried these filters and I offer up my review for them below.
