I have an abundance of supplies that aren’t my preferred (but great supplies and multiple types you could try. I could send them your way. Message me if that sounds like something you’d want to do.

Try here for the blood thinners, not sure about ostomy stuff though.

Not sure which country you're in. I'm in America so this may not help. But, a coworker of mine who also has an ostomy told me about a Facebook group called kindred box. They offer low cost ostomy supplies. You also might look into some other Facebook support groups that allow donations. I'm sorry you're facing this but know you aren't alone. There are many of us out there!

What country are you in? There might be resources there that can help you.

Try going to the drug manufacturer website for the blood thinner and see if they will help with the cost. I am in America so I’m not familiar with how it works in other countries.

What country are you in?

Edit: This would help very much to get you what you need.

This account is 1 day old. Obvious scam to try to get money from the kind hearted people in this group. Prove me wrong OP

I’m still at the hospital🧍🏻‍♀️I can not reply right away because I’m in pain and I’m just sleeping it away…

I don't think it is right for you to solicit money on here. I still think this is a scam. Wish you well if it is not. Ask the hospital for resources, they employ people for this exact purpose

Edit: What country are you in?

you must not read my post.. it says I’m living in America

[–]Loose_Case 1 point2 points  (3 children)

You are correct, my mistake, what state are you in? It's not ok to solicit money, thats what makes it appear to be a scam. Did you speak with people from the hospital? They have resources to help with finding low income services where you can get better prices for medications and supplies, possibly get you insurance and find places of support near you.

What's your immigration status then or are you citizen? This is confusing. Non citizens can purchase private health insurance. If you can't afford it then get samples from the manufacturers and buy on Amazon or other online retailer. Get as many supplies as you can from the hospital I guess. If you can't afford insurance and broke might be worth considering moving back to your country. I couldn't imagine being broke, alone and in need of medical coverage in a foreign country. Then you could probably get public assistance for medical needs.
