Hi, I am off to the Netherlands next month and was wondering if I could send some of the ostomy supplies I will need to the place I will be staying, a friends home, via the regular postal service?
Only asking as I am only taking hand luggage so not much 'bag' room for my supplies....luggage in the hold is getting rather expensive now!
I have just been checking out the issue of ostomy shower guards in the UK. There is a useful article on the US Stomashield site. However the problem with US products is that they can often have hefty import duties attached. The US blue crown apron is one such product. Now - don't tell me to wrap a plastic sheet around it or a shower cap over it.... are there any specialised products like Blue Crown on the UK sites? Can anyone advise?
Tks Laurence. Aware TX is big but just wanted an understanding of the system here in US - in the UK, any hospital would be able to give these FOC - rather than a specific location. (Which admittedly I didn't make v clear in my post!) So tyvm.
