      Check all advice with your medical team! Plus, quoting medical sources (HON code requirement)   08/25/2015

      Here at Ostomyland we are a patient run community - meaning we have learnt what we know as a result of being the patient and 99% of our members have got no medical qualifications whatsoever, and so any support replies are usually based on personal experience or friends/family-members personal experience. As a result Ostomyland strongly recommend that all members should check the accuracy of any support/health advice they have been given here with a member of their own medical team (GP, ET/Stoma Nurse/ Surgeon etc) BEFORE acting on it. This is for your own safety, as all our bodies are very different, and what works for one might not for the other, and for another it might even be dangerous! Ostomyland is not responsible for the content of the posts made, each member is responsible for their own posts. So if you ever did get any duff advice (unlikely, but could happen one day....) then blame the person who posted the message, and not Ostomyland. We are proud to be HON code certified and work very hard to meet the requirements of their principles. As such, and as requested under principle 4 of the HON code guidelines we must ask that members of the forums please quote sources for any medical information they give which is not based on personal experience.   Thanks.

Where can I get closures urgently?

3 posts in this topic

Hi. Just arrived in Texas from Europe for a two-week vacation and realized I have forgotten clips/closures/ties for my drainable pouches!! I am panicking as no idea where I can get some. Checked eBay but may not deliver til Friday and I am moving about so a pharmacy/hospital or similar would be much better. Any advice would be so welcome!!!

Make some phone calls to hospitals, pharmacies.  In the meantime, buy a roll of duct tape...

PS  Texas comprises almost 262,000 square miles...

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.
