Everyday Ostomy Terms

Whether you or a loved one has an ostomy, one thing is certain, there is a lot to learn. It can be confusing to say the least when you first start caring for your ostomy. Your nurses and doctors will be using terms you may have never heard before. They may reference things you can't even picture because you have never seen them before! I have listed out some very basic ostomy terms to get you familiar with some of the supplies. Be patient with yourself and never be afraid to ask questions. These are just a few of the terms you will hear and there are many others. United Ostomy Association of America has a great guide for new ostomates that I highly recommend.

Motivation Monday: Brian's Story

Brian's Motivational Condom Catheter Story The best part of my job with Express Medical Supply is getting to talk to the people who use the supplies we sell. I first talked to Brian several months ago and he was frustrated because he could not find a leg bag that could be worn while he was riding his Ice Sprint 26x recumbent trike. Brian has had MS (Multiple Sclerosis) for 23 years and since his first exacerbation he has been focused on exercise. Maintaining his health and his quality of life is important to Brian and he works had to ensure his health goals are met despite having MS. He is active and needed a leg bag that could be concealed while riding his bike and wearing a pair of shorts. Brian called the MS Society, his Urologist, he even asked the recumbent trike riders group, no one knew of a product that met his needs.
